Steering Wheel Adjustment

Is it normal for the steering wheel adjustment (in and out) to be stiff?

Is there a lubrication point?

Thanks in advance for any replies

Mine is kind of stiff too when telescoping.
Are they all like that? Can't say.
You might have luck using a dry graphite lubricant. I wouldn't try any oil or grease there.
Just my $0.02 worth.

Yeah, mine takes a fair amount of pressure to move as well. Don't know if it's normal or not or how to properly lubricate it.

The telescoping on mine is also a bit stiff, though it seems to work best when the wheel is not locked.
