Check axles by taking the trucks off and chucking one side up in a drill then pull the trigger for the slowest forward speed to check them for bent axles.

If your hands are big enough you can hold the wheels in your hands and spin them to check bearing bores. If you feel like there is a high spot between the bearings, that's likely part of it.

Another is set the wheel on the axle and spin it whil holding your finger close to the wheel. Does the gap between the OD of your wheel and your finger change? If so the wheel is likely also out of round.


If you relocate the wheel(s) does the problem follow the wheel? I would presume it does.
