2 things I would do, unfortunately have been there.
1 check to make sure the connecting shaft that runs across to the other landing gear is tight, should be a bolt on each end (there was on my Cougar)
2 the top of the landing gear shaft should have a metal cap on it, remove that and make sure you don't see any debris in the worm gears.
