Have to guess at your meaning, it's a meaningless jumble of incomprehension.

Looking at this picture, I see no lack of room for tall cushions, the top of the upper cone is hard plastic instead of a locknut, brilliant.

The loctite holds the kingpin in place so the adjuster nut on the end wont turn the kingpin, pretty simple.

Simple, yes that's a good description.

Also, you WANT the axle "frozen" in the truck. It should not move or hve any play why so ever. Blue is not strong enough. You need green or red and they need to be the oil resistant versions.

This ain't rocket science, by design the axles aren't frozen in the truck from the factory, blue loctite is adequate to hold an axle and it doesn't require heat to remove it.

Theres nothing wrong with his post or his setup. If he ever breaks a kingpin , extracting it may be a little more difficult, but not an issue for the mechanically inclined.
In your opinion, and your opinion is terrible so far, hmm, here we have the two "inline roller skaters", not roller skaters not inline skaters just morphs, and oh' look? no nuts.
