    @sarc ,

    I would recommend just sanding a bushing down a bit instead of forcing one in...will save you some trouble.
    I shaved down a standard barrel on my griptape to fit into my Thunders.

    My Paris TPK pivot cups keep falling off every time I take the hangar off... so my answer would be "any"

    I'll break out the measuring tape next time (a couple of days)

    Check out the ones by Riot or RipTide that say they're made for Paris.

    Would those happen to be Venom? I have a set of Riot, RipTide, and Venom, and my Venom fall out all the time and don't fit snugly at all. My other two sets stay in nicely though.

    I have the RipTide cups in my TKPs, they seem to fit the best for me and that thane feels like it would be best in a TKP.
    EDIT: Now that I think about it, I might've had my Riot cups in my TKPs for a bit, but RipTide is the best in those I've found. There is still some slop I think, but it's much better than the stock cups and the best fit out of the three brands.

    try adding the pivot tubes that go around the kingpin, I've heard that they completely eliminate slop. Also try new pivot cups. I think riptide sells them both as a combo deal

    Default Paris Truck Co. Official Updates/ Q&A.

    Paris really did not help at all with total lack of spec on its website (hanger height, +/- impact on wheelbase, recommended wheel size, what it is good for.
    Independent does a 1000 times better job (including the FAQ page)

    But this is the end of my complaints. I love the truck - it's a keeper in my quiver!

    My notes after 2 days riding:
    - Comes with soft bushing (seems like 83 to88A??? I'm not sure)
    - Amazing for soft bushing no wheelbite with 70mm Biggie Hawgs on a 9" pintail with wheel wells (but no flares). No risers. I stand with both feet on the board edge next to wheel to check for static bite. I'm 200lb. I think it's effect of bushing seat and stock cupped bottom and top washers. I was really pleased.
    - The stock bushings are very rubbery, close to Venom SHR maybe? I like them a lot. For my 200lb they feel super agile but not mushy. Lots of lean (relatively speaking for a TPK) and very turny, but again surprising great stability for pushing and very effective return to center. Love it.
    - The bottom bushing is a short barrel I think 13 or 14mm. The top is a standard cone 16mm. I suppose it's a compromise for kingpin length to make the truck grindable. With enough time and profanities I was able to fit standard barrel/cone on the trucks. With regular bottom barrel you get a bit more lean; using the 90A barrel that came standard with the Paris RPK trucks and the top cone that came with the TPK I got a nice divey but springy feeling. Cupped washers top and bottom are needed. I was surprised that I could set up Venor Supercarve SHR 90A both road+boardside on both trucks and still no wheelbite with the Biggie Hawgs. The result was fun and very carvy but overall the stock bushing felt better than Supercarve cones on all sides.
    - The truck feeling is excellent. The truck lean/turn ratio is constant, so the more you lean the more you turn, and then the truck stops leaning when it's maxed out. VERRRRY NICE.
    - I found excellent for pushing (hangar height + stability), carving (agility even with stock bushing), pumping, sliding.

    Cheers
    The stock bushings are Divine 86a
