Yoke binding

My yokes were removed for an instrument panel replacement and new avionics. Following reinstalation, there is a lot of friction when the yokes slide in and out. The nylon blocks the shafts travel look symmetrical but perhaps they are not(?). Any ideas to try?  Thanks


Get food grade silicone spray and lube them up!

Maybe the yokes were swapped or the alignment was changed during install that results in them binding on the bushing?  You could always remove one and then the other to see if its the right or left causing the issue.
