Pick the Right Bushing Durometer
The Silverfish Wiki recommends following the guidelines below while picking your bushings. Find your weight range and choose a bushing within the range that works for you. Choose harder (a higher duro) for less turn and softer (a lower duro) for more turn. Remember that these are general guidelines, your preference may vary depending on application.
