    Front right wheels won't move

    I recently installed MIPS X Duty on the front and since then I am not getting good movement on the wheels but when I go back a little on the nut it then starts to give me some play but it's wobbly. I've even took it apart and put some grease on all the moving parts specially on the ball bearings inside the steering blocks. When I remove the tire off it moves great with no issues. Any suggestions?

    Here is a video of it.

    Sometimes the mip cup can rub on the knuckles and also can generate enough heat to melt plastic hexes. Just check the aluminum for wear. They usually 'wear in'. You can dremel it abit to help.

    Thank you for the tip. I'll buff it down just a bit. I'm also using the metal hexes that came with the MIPS.

    I took it apart again and switched on which side hexes the way it goes into the front of the steering buckle and it fixed it.
