Replacing my servo and noticed that when my Kraton is relaxed on the suspension it's loose and free like it should be left to right! But when suspension is out like picking the truck up the steering binds up bad and is very hard to turn! Please help

@Jsroberts - I had a similar issue and was stripping servos left and right. Very frustrating!

My issue was the pivot ball screw was too tight and the servo was working too hard to turn the wheels left to right.

I loosened the pivot ball screw and now it works like a charm! Here is a video that shows how to clean, maintain and loosen the pivot ball joint. Hope this helps!
