Thanks for the input,  I think I was putting way to much thought in to it.
it seems that the approach that you use is straight forward and makes good sense.
 I am a machinest by trade, there always needs to be a form of technical measurement haha.

First off I wouldn't worry about getting both trucks to feel the same or worry about torque etc. The best way to go about it is put the board down and ride it for a few minutes. If the trucks feel too wobbly tighten them up. If they feel too stiff loosen them. Usually I ride my front truck a little looser than my back. It's like my back truck is for stability and my front is for turning.

good morning,

 I am trying to determine how to properly set up a new set of trucks. 
  I am having a hard time finding a starting point to preload the bushings, I have not found a really accurate form of measurement, I have tried by feel, and I have tried an inch pound torque wrench,  at 30 to 40 inch pounds,
my goal is to just get them set the same as a starting point so that I can make adjustments to both equally.

 I might not be going about this the right way.  any help and / or suggestions would be really appreciated.

Hi  the next time your at the reedsport Oregon park, walk over to the 1 stop sport shop, there about 150 ft away, and check out the boarding section, they have just expanded in to boarding the last couple of weeks, looks like they are taking it seriously, they had about 20 decks on display.  Pretty rad.  prices looked good most deck prices were comparable to what ive seen on line.

1. Mullen
2. Gonz
3. Natas
4-10 Whoever the best vert/park skater is/was

I'm partial to Mullen for all his innovation and for what Gonz and Natas did with his tricks by shreading them in the streets.

I just got back into Skating so I am still sticking with the guys that were around when I started to skate and read about 'em in the magazines. We did not have a skatepark in my area so street skaters were my favorite, Mark Gonzalez, Natas, plus for some reason I really liked Lance Mountain. Kind of dig Mike V as well. Don't know much about the new fellas puting it down...I'll stick with the old farts for a while.

I'm 43 and just started to skate again. I skate with my two older boys, 13 and 10. My 10 year old was saving up for a board he wanted at Zumiez and I took him there to buy it. Decided on getting a board right then and there. Got a Krooked X-Large and we went right out the back door and skated around the parking lot and the Sears loading dock. We then spent the next three hours checking out my old skating haunts, Hospital, Middle School it was in a word...Rad.

I am way overweight but Skating again is making me want to lose weight. I can't do any of what I used to do on a board but I'm having just as much fun. We bought a decent ramp that we have in the back yard and have been skating that a bit. I starting look up skaters that I used to like when I was younger...sheesh talk about flash backs. I had a P&P Lance Mountain Future Primitive board back in the day and Vision Mark Gonzalez too. Those guys still skate!

Like everyone else says, just skate. If it's fun for you then do it. Welcome to mid-life crisis 2.0! (1.0 was owning a Porsche).
