bad trem posts?? on new edge Pro??

Hey guys. i have a rg8527 with the new edge pro trem.. and i'm starting to get the same problem with that as i have on my rg3120.. pull up, stays a little sharp. push down, goes back in tune. i have tightened everything (neck, tuners, nut).. i will say that when i push it down and pull it up, i hear something shifting up near the nut.. it kinda makes a faint thudding noise (thats the best way i can descibe it) i'm guessing that is the problem even though it's tightened down. though it sounds just like bad trem posts. any ideas???

try some Chapstick on the trem posts, where the trem rests against them.

I've never seen this product in norway, but other lip balms may work...
