Those top hat bushes....is it just the internal bush to bolt contact that needs greasing,or is it the outer bush to housing as well?

Best to pop out the bushes, clean out the bores that carry them, clean the bore of the bushes, as well as the shaft that goes through them.

In bad cases, the bushes get compressed by the build up of corrosion so best to clean it out.

Thanks very much Chris....You were spot on.It was compression of the bushes.
The reason I asked was that bushes looked and seemed in good condition and so I was reluctant to remove and possibly damage them unnecessarily in the process;however having now replaced them as per your suggestions the difference is remarkable.
Thanks again.
