    Oil them. Duh.

    Roller bearings and trucks which have metal on metal contact require lubrication to stop squeaks. The best thing you can use is a light sewing machine oil.

    I don't agree with the people telling you to oil your bushings. I tried that a long time ago and it kinda works but eventually the oil will collect tons of dirt and grime.

    The best way to stop the squeak is to buy new bushings. The best ones are probably Bones. I'm pretty sure they won't squeak any more if you put the new Bones in there.

    Nothing's wrong. It's the bushings squeaking. Some powdered graphite on the bush=ing to metal contact points might reduce the squeaking.

    After a day or two, you won't notice it anyway.

    Your trucks are going to squeak. When you skate, all parts of your board go through abuse so it should not matter to much. You can oil them if you want but it will not make too much of a difference. Just try to skate with it and you'll find other problems faster. Squeaking does not hurt your board or you so just oil them, loosen them, or what i advise is to just forget about it.

    so if it squeak as you turn it could be two things, the pivot cups or the bushings

    try putting a small dab of lithium grease in the pivot cups
