Default Rebuilding Servos Yes or No

Hey guys, I have a pile of HS5085MG servos, they all have gotten that ratchet feel to em, due to crashing

I replaced all the gears with new one, applied ample servo grease, yet even with the new gears they are not like the new ones
Still has that ratchet feel

What do you all think?

Thanks,

FCA

Metal gears are not perfectly round,
1. Rotate one or more gears slightly and try again
2. Ensure case is not overtightened

Also check the pivot points for the pins inside the case. They often get damaged as well and require a replacement case to repair.
