Loud going up and down...

    I have the VX85 and ever since the hydrolic replacement under warranty for a defect, the up and down sounds like metal on metal screaching. I took all pins out and greased them and still have the same noise. I just moved it from one place in the driveway to a pallet and remembered how loud it is. Any ideas or should I just call the dealer...

    Thanks,
    Chuck

    PS I know it is the off season, but figured I should get it fixed before next season..

    I'd definitely take it in and probably get the lift cylinder looked at.
