Sometimes vibration can be caused by loose bearings at the ends of the slave struts. One way to limit this is to tighten a nylon wire tie around the bearing between the strut and the clevis bracket on the aileron. This limits vibration but is sufficiently compliant to allow free motion on the aileron and strut. Charlie Harrison
