Smoothside Passenger Car Trucks

I’m forever looking for replacement parts etc. I found KATO part numbers for my passenger car trucks. Parts 800033 and 800043 are the silver ones that match my ARR set. I found them available for purchase on https://www.n-scalemodeltrains.com. They are Boston and Albany Hobbies out of NH.

Coupling Problem

I’m not sure what to do about this problem. In an S curve, the body mounted couplers are offset too far. I’m thinking a short, straight piece of track may be needed.
