I advise those who grease their cushions to rethink the matter, especially with the shallower kingpin plates like the DA45 family.

The reason is that as the plate leans, it also twists. On some plates the twisting of trucks around the KP is nearly as much as the lean. When you lube the cushions, the cushion stack items can spin on the KP, and this can eliminate the useful TORSIONAL (twisting) REBOUND that is available when the the cushion urethane sticks to the suspension stack components with more friction.

Cool Little kids custom Vizari footie, now w/custom LED wheels - final update

To round these out, they ended up getting checker boarded white and pink LED sunset cruiser wheels lathe faced by okcskater to make the hubs side-set.

She's at the knife's edge on these size-wise now. Time to build her a new set of skates I guess
