    A loose balljoint became tight? This is the miracle us Transformers collectors have been waiting for!!!

    But seriously, I have no idea.

    i don't have a pcc. if it has a ratchet joint check to see if something snapped inside it could be blocking the turn

    I guess some light sanding should loosen it.
