The wheels are Rollerbones Art Elite 57mm/101A and Bones Super Reds bearings. Just gave the bearings the bath in mineral spirits and fresh 3-in-1 oil last week. The cushions are Sure-Grip factory (black, most likely medium). Suspension is adjusted to where I have about half an inch or so deflection on the trucks up and down by hand on both sides of the plate. They track and move correctly and I have the maneuverability I want without losing control. Since I don't have access to a pro shop of any kind or the tools to check, I kinda have to trust the factory mounting. It looks correct, though.
