do you have a photo or drawing breakdown of this.
Lift black cover off top of strut tower
Spray liberally with your favorite lube (not that lube..the other one!)
Return cover to strut tower

EDIT: (I drank the 4 beers last night...it'* the only reason the slow old guy beat me out.)

Lube em.
Try mixing 90w gear oil with lithium grease but do it with the wheels turned all the way to the right.
I'm a happy camper as mine steers like a dream now. I just lube them once a year like you would a door hinge.
Dirt and salt from the Northest gets in and makes them stick.
