      I'll second that.

      Plus I'd check your bearing blocks, where the ends of the cushion sit, are fixed down properly. Had these loose before and can allow the cushion to rise slightly when hit with a ball.

        The Transport Belt Board Side Frame, also called Frame Supports as mentioned by A-RON and geks (not the side attached to the accelerator, the side attached to the actual kickback) Has a long bolt going through the kickback that holds the Transport Belt Frames for the adjacent lanes. Those bolts have a nasty habit of shearing off. To test this I just step on the side frame support where the threaded rod goes through (the rod used for adjusting T-Belt tracking). If it has any give, the bolt is sheared. Also, I have seen this happen due to a really worn impact strip, or a combination of both.
