Default Steering issue help NON SERVO RELATED

Hey guys, I just got my HPI RS4 and tried driving it. Moved fine, but I had a really hard time steering the thing. It wouldn't center and would hold left or right, whichever direction I last went. Took the wheels off and started diag'ing. Noticed that the 4 ball joints are really tight. Anyone have a remedy for this?

They will loosen up over time so a little snug is good to start with...but it shouldn't be so tight that the servo doesn't bring it back to near center. You could try popping them off and on the ball a few times as that will loosen them up faster. Are you sure the right ball studs were used?

That's just the thing. I'm not sure. I just picked it up and that's what I found. I can't seem to find parts on Towerhobbies but I've been told that's where they are. Any help with that?
