Default Copilot Seat Adjustment

Wrapping up the new refrigerator project and reinstalled the copilot seat. History on this seat since purchase was that it was difficult to rotate. Bearing race under the seat was very stiff so I put WD40 in it and worked it back and forth until it rotated freely. Now that seat is mounted, it moves very easily when latch is released....maybe too easy. Wondering if I tighten down the bolt under the seat to put more pressure on the bearings if the seat would have a better feel to it. Anyone tried this?

Since wd40 isnt really a lubricant and all the seat races ive seen have a light grease maybe some grease will slow it down a little. Worth a try as it needs more lube now anyways.
