SPRacer, Shogun, DoctorJ, SteveP:
THANK YOU ALL for the advice.
In the process of checking the things you guys told me to, I found that the two bell crank towers were the problem. They both have black plastic bushings instead of ball bearings. Need to replace those. Also, if you tighten the blue steering linkage too much, it will bind like hell.
Thanks again guys
SteveP: I replaced mine with original aluminum RR retainers and they worked fine.
