A few days ago I ordered some Riptide Pivot cups for my Caliber II's. I wasn't paying attention much to the checkout and accidentally ordered two sets of them. I swapped out the stock pivot cups and threw in the Riptides and this is what happens. Its a bit hard to see, but the trucks are slanted. When going into a carve they have ABSOLUTELY NO return to center. They just stay dead with no rebound what so ever. I thought the first set was just a dud and I tried to second set I had. SAME EXACT THING. At that point I thought it was my trucks for some reason so I asked my friend to try them on his trucks. Same exact problem. I even tried lubing them up just a little, it sorta worked for a day or two but after that back to the same thing. I never once had a problem with Riptide Pivot cups on any of my other trucks. But I'm going to have to say that they really fucked up with Caliber II's.

lightly polish the pivot on the hanger, if problems continue let riptide know they have great customer service and they always update shapes if products are faulty
@AndrewVollmar Yea, that was the first thing I checked to make sure I didn't get the wrong ones.
did you get the correct size
@BrendonHolmes I checked many times, even tried putting them over again 3 times. No matter what I tried it doesn't return to its center position.
check to make sure they aren't loose or put in wrong. that can cause the slant to happen
