I also recommend using the slow & controlled eccentric phase.

As mentioned above, the slow "negative" is easier on the elbows, but - especially when getting acclimated to this exercise - it also helps avoid banging your head on the bar as it travels underneath. That part also requires a certain knack, as you'll see many trainers execute an odd looking German shepherd-type head tilt to clear the bar.

Practice will eventually eliminate the need for this as you learn the proper body alignment, including foot position and pelvic tilt.

Seems lately that skullcrushers and seated OH ext cause a "burning " sensation right above my elbow where the tricep ties in. No pain on any other tricep moves or pressing of any kind, seems to be only these two exercises .....any ideas wtf that's all about?
my favorite tricep exericse is one arm over head dumbell extensions but it started fucking up my elbows so i backed off and focused  on using the pulleys for a while, elbows got better, nowdays what i like to do is warm up the triceps with a few sets of extensions using the pulleys then do a couple sets of over head dumbell extensions afterwards. works well.

I have no issue with pulleys either, but it doesn't matter how warmed up I am they still hurt. I've been sticking to CGBP, pushdowns with different attachments and even reverse grip pushdowns.
On a little side note, I can do standing overhead cable extentions with no pain at all.
