Stiff Joystick

Well i have a pretty new Mad Catz TE arcade stick. I am not sure if it is me or the joystick…But today my joystick just randomly started feeling stiff on the right side…So i am wondering if this is common?? And can someone tell me the exact replacement joystick i will need for the TE arcade stick if it really starts to bug me…

My Joystick felt reeeeal loose on the left side yesterday, so I took it apart and moved the gate and microswitch thing around and it was all good. Too bad I accidentally smudged some lubricant off my actuator and messed up my stick, but my problem was solved earlier today. I love this forum.

Sanwa JLF-TP-8YT-SK Joystick is for the replacement can i get some pics could be a micros switch problem or the gate
