Odd, this happened to me a few weeks ago. The rubber boot cover on the tunnel was loose and caused some binding, the remainder was cured with some lube. Hope yours is as easily fixed!

They are tight like prom night so I need new ones. Not sure what happened but I need a big screwdriver to even move them.

Are you talking about nylon cups sitting on each end of the front rod inside of a metal cup? If so, you should prolly replace them. Mine had broken lip, and on 2 other 993s they were almost to the point of turning into hard plastic ready to disintegrate. Plastic cups are 928 part number (not in 911 PET) and cost about 10 bux apiece.

Edit: part I'm talking about is 928-116-145-03

Weltmeister, right?

Pretty sure the FDM forward rod will fit your existing setup...
