- Question: Do I need to put a bushing in wheels when used with this axle?
- Answer: No, the hubs can have a straight bore to accomodate the axle as-is (with a sligiht tolerance for lubrication and turning ease). You can apply beeswax/candle wax/paste wax, or even Vaseline if the assembly starts to squeak or becomes difficult to turn
