    well, you don't really.
    if you put risers inbetween the baseplate and the board the deck will get lower.

    you could run it topmount (standard) if you need the deck to be higher for some reason.

    edit. ah.
    well you need to cut the riser up to use it on a dropthrough set up.
    the LED risers could be put on the top of the baseplate. but that won't make you lower.

    if you really want the lighted ones on there you could put them ontop of the baseplate, but risers have to be cut to go betweent the board and the baseplate on a drop through

    Would I be able to use the dervish soft risers like in this image to put on my hellcat to lower the board, or would i be better off using hard risers and cutting them?

    Those thin pads are really only to make the ride smoother and to not harm the deck. If you stacked those, they would just squish.

    Thats what I thought. Just guessing here but i can just cut a normal hard 1/8inch hard riser in half and use that for mounting to the TOP of the deck, under the baseplate to lower the ride height? Khiro Hard Risers, Various Sizes

    Hi, did anybody tried to put solid risers on a DT deck to lower the "pressing point" of the board on the trucks and increase the slideability?
    what do you think of this setup?

    rayne babykiller DT
    surf rodz indeesz 177 FA
    abec 11 freerides 84a
    with riserpads to lower the board at a maximum point (wheelbite or groundgrind)

    won't it be a sliding monster?

    I guess if you wanted it to look neat you got trace your drop thru cutout on the riser, drill a hole in the middle and use that to start cutting with the jigsaw/scroll saw/ban saw you have available

    yep, use the search and find the answers. Everything has been answered at least 10 times on this forum, just gotta look for it. 99% of the time there is just no need for a new thread or even a new post since everything can be read up, especially on super-basic stuff like that

    Well if the user did search and didn't find it so he creates a new thread to ask, Wouldn't it be more helpful to link him to the thread with the answer that he's looking for instead of writing two or three lines to troll or even insult him?

    Besides, not every one knows how to do an efective search or even if they do, sometimes their situation is a little bit different from the one found in the search so they make a personalized question, Can't you guys simply help them with an answer perhaps shorter that the insult itself?

    Remember that the answers found here are there because someone answered them instead of writing "use the search function"
