Hi my name is***** will be glad to help. Check for any worn, damaged, out of adjustment or alignment bushings or components that would cause operational issues. Since this sounds hydraulic related I would check the filter for fine metal/debris that would flag a pump or component problem occurring and check the control and relief valves for damaged o rings or debris. Have the pressures also checked to verify if they are in OEM specs. Let me know.

Please take a moment to rate as that is how the site credits my time helping on the site or let me know if you need more help. 5 star and bonuses are always greatly appreciated.
