Default steering is all stiff and tight after changing bell crank and servo saver

hey yall i have a savage x 4.6 and after my crash last week, i had to change the steering servo saver and the bell crank. i got it all done today and i made sure to set the bell crank to what my original one was already at, it seems to be at about 4mm however after putting it back together, the steering seems harder to move. i figured out that the plastic thing that sits next to the metal bell crank has two screws, one coming from under the truck and one coming from the battery box, if i loosen those up a tiny bit, then the steering becomes easier to move. however if i snug them up, then the steering is difficult to move. i just don't want the screws to completely come out during bashing or something, i tried different types of tighteness on both screws and it only seems to want to steer easily when its a tad bit loose. is there something else that i need to be looking at? i don't think my servo is the problem cuz i can feel the difference with my hands by manually steering.

in this pic I'm referring to 85058 (3). it doesn't show the 2 screws that i am referring to in this pic, but there is one that screws into the top and bottom from under the truck and from the battery box

thanks!
