Default Sunlite Axle Swap?

Hi Doc,

Do you know if it is possible to press/pull/unscrew the factory axle on a Sunlite truck and replace it with a longer axle?

Thanks!

Not entirely sure! What should I be looking-for/measuring to determine?

Default DA

I believe.... those will press out. Not 100% sure but cast in axles are a relatively new occurrence and DA Sunlites are well aged.

I would ask what on earth you are up to.... but then again, I may not want to know.

Default Remember these?



And these?



Very similar skate build this time, just an ever so slightly different goal/application.

A1 axles by Sure Grip could work. Hit up your favorite parts source.... If they give you that blank "huh" look, get back to me.
