JS Noise from Trem arm

Hey all, been noodling on my JS2450 today and noticed when I reach for the trem arm as it rotates theres noise coming through the pickup like is grinding on something. I'm sure this happens on all Edge trems, but I'm wondering what the best way is to remedy this grinding sound. It's actually kinda annoying when playing.

Any ideas/suggestions?

It's usually the spring rubbing in the groove as you spin the bar. The cure is a little grease but ONLY in the detent of the bar. You do not want it to get on the inside of the tube or your bar will never stay put.

Thanks! That did the trick! Smooth as a babies bottom. No more grinding noises.
