It happens. Being a machinist you need to be analytical because everything has to work together in a very exact way. Skating is different.

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.

thanks.

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.
