 29 is young, I am almost 53 and just got on a board today to start practicing my balance,  oh yea and checking a truck set up,  the one thing I have learned is it just takes a little longer to learn and  recover the older you get,  and yes for those of you thinking it, ill say it for you,  I am aware I could break a hip.

Same boat here.

Its more frustrating than anything. Especially when you see a 7 year old pop awesome tricks that you think will take you ages to learn.S

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.
