Fixing a 2332 GG1 - front and rear trailing trucks need repair. But, need to know if the rear of the truck mounting plate is bend on one of the trucks and straight on the others for some reason. I pick d up a used truck and noticed the bend also. Or should all of the mounting areas be straight like the truck on the left?

I agree they should be straight.  However, I can imagine that some Dad way back may have bent that tab to allow the pilot wheels to remain on the track as the 2332 began the steep descent of a Lionel trestle set.  Some of those grades (and transitions!) were just insane!!

Creep, coast, and pull.  We're not talking about cold fusion here.
