Since you are posting I'm glad to see you are not underwater...

From the pic I see another whole direction here. Instead of using a cushion as a poor substitute for an alignment mechanism why not put a matching radius smaller convex Delrin "washer" on top of the nut and a larger concave "washer" fitting inside the truck's lower recess? This would move all the urethane vagueness into one area where it might be easier to model and control. There might need to be some urethane between the top of the big washer and truck for smoothness and vibration absorption but it wouldn't come into play as much as you have now.

I love the video! Need to see more of it in this thread!

Common wisdom is anything but...
