Default Plate/Truck problems

I have a pair of reidell powerdyne reactor neo plates and have an issue with the front left truck. My axle appears to aimed slightly to the outside.

I am a heavy skater and thought that maybe I just warped the cushions from always skating the same direction. I replace the cushions with harder ones and it appears to be slightly better, but the skate still veers to the outside. I also replace my wheels in case they were worn weird. It is particularly problematic when I skate backwards on my left foot (one foot).

I skate derby now, but am an artistic convert (skated for about 8 years, but 20 years ago). I am normally very comfortable in other skates and tried to use rental one night to make sure I was fine on other skates backwards on my left foot. I had no issues in the rentals.

I am to the point where I am ready to just buy new plates, but these are only a few months old.

Any thoughts on other possible solutions?

Could this be a mounting problem vs a plate problem?? Can ya shoot some pix of the bottom of the plates, wheels and bearings off??
If you are willing to compromise on results, by all means, compromise on equipment. If you think you can get by, you most likely will...Just get by.
