If your deck barely tilts, it means you have tight trucks, which will make it difficult to turn. If your board tilts easily, it means your trucks are loose; while looser trucks make turning easier, they also make your deck unstable and difficult to control.

Why are my skateboard trucks crooked?

Do all bushings fit all trucks?
