DTetzIf you’re putting a new boot in with a different BSL then yes, you’re going to need to adjust the binding. This can be a little different for each model of binding, but generally there’s a screw at the back of the heal piece that will slide it forward/backward. The binding is supposed to be adjusted with the boot in it, and when properly adjusted (called correct “forward pressure”) the screw that you adjusted will be flush with the housing or plastic (typical for Salomon bindings ex. Wardens). Some indicators for “forward pressure” is different for each binding, but most of them will have an indicator that goes “flush” or meets a requirement somewhere in the middle of an indicator. Some bindings also have a very narrow range of adjustment and some have larger.
If they’re the exact same BSL and (for example both ISO 5355 soles) you’re good to slap them in and they’ll rip fine.
Some have adjustable toe height that should be done to 0.5mm of touching the anti friction device (the slidy thing that travels perpendicular to the ski).
once again all bindings a bit different and if you’re not sure, mentioning an exact model or taking them to the shop doesn’t hurt (although might hurt the wallet)...

Idk what your point is, could you clarify? I worked at a shop for the previous 5 and din adjustment was definitely not an issue, just a simple calculation.
