    Default need help tweaking dropped setup

    Hey guys i have a landyachtz 9two5 and i need help with bushings. i like to freeride but my friend gave me some bushings that are now worn out and i need some new ones. My setup is bear 852's and hesher snowballs. i like to be able to do free riding and some light dh (less than 30mph). my old bushings were great! they were springy and were easy to turn into a slide (almost loose feeling) but were stable and seemed to have a nice lively feel when carving/ coming out of a slide. i am basicically looking for new bushings similar to the ones i explained. I weigh 200 lbs if anyone would help thatd be great!

    You probably had the stock bear 852 bushings. Some similiar would be Bear JimZ barrel Bushings 82a. I can't seem to find some like it anywhere, but look at here for some new bushings:-

    I hope I helped bro! Good luck with the bushings!

    For a drop-through or drop deck board, you might want to consider going a little softer than usual since you'll have a little less leverage than a top mount board.

    Those bears sound like they come with pretty soft bushings though - if those were stock bushings and 82a. That will at least give you a point of reference, if you liked them or if they were too hard or too soft for you.

    They may be randal barrels if they have rounded edges on them. For venom barrels I am inclined to recomend 87a(Purple) barrels and or 85a(Yellow) barrels(Either the same all around or a mix 87a bottom 85a on top.) Also if you want to try a bunch of bushings I also recomend looking at riptide bushings also.

    I don't think venoms work with the 852s , I have tried them and they do not seat in the truck properly.

    I'm running a venom barrel board side and a venom cone road side on mine, they work just dandy.

    SHRs aren't much better than standard venoms but if you get shr go a duro or 2 higher.

    Hello everyone, this thread is hella old. I have already found my favorite bushing setup which is the blood orange bushings that come on calibers and gunmetals. I thank you for all your help.

    Ps. I was enjoying pastel blue shr barrels until i switched to the bloods.
