Default Servo Saver locked up

I have a mbx5t and the servo saver is basically locked up on it. I can wd40 it and get it to "work" but it takes nearly all my might to do so. I have my limits set on my radio perfect but I keep stripping gears out whenever I have a bad roll. I run this thing FULL throttle and hit some BIG jumps.

check out: www.youtube.com/user/wishmasstir for some videos

I just ordered every part for the servo saver to replace the existing and bought a new airtronics servo $119.99 on amainhobbies 400+ oz. I hope this will fix the problem because I was running the factory servo saver and I added on onto the servo itself (ofna servo saver) and that has been working for a long time but it adds slop in the steering and this hitec 645mg wasn't cutting it with that horn on it.

Hitec TITANIUM gear servos. 'nuff said. There is nothing as good made. (the little cheap 645mg is not in the same league... there is a reason they are cheap.)

I ordered the airtronics 94780M

Do the servo savers in the bellcranks lock up like this though? What type of maintenance is required on them?
