RipTide APS Chubby Bushing


Lively and responsive, high-performance urethane with just the right amount of rebound.  Very linear in response so you can control the bushing instead of the other way around.

APS (Animated Polymer System) Formula:

As the name implies, this compound is very lively and offers high rebound with lots of control and lean.  For the same durometer, the APS will turn 10% to 15% more than the same durometer of other brands.  In addition, the APS does not change much when you tighten the kingpin nut past snug.  We recommend tightening to the point where it is difficult to turn the bushing in the bushing seat by hand.  Use a flat washer for lower resistance and a cupped washer for higher resis

The Chubby Shape:

Traditionally known as the stepped barrel, the Chubby shape is the most voluminous of all bushing shapes. The stepped barrel fits snugly around and over the bushing seat and provides much greater resistance when turning, therefore providing much more stability. Normally fitted boardside and paired with a smaller bushing on the roadside of the truck (i.e. barrel, fat cone etc.)

Please note: The equivalent durometer of a Rip Tide bushings to a standard bushings is about 3-5 durometers higher. Thus a 93a Rip Tide bushings would correspond to a 88a conventional bushing.

*Price indicated is for a set of two bushings and includes two washers.
