Take your blade belt off. Lift the deck. Grab each blade and check it for wobble/bearing wear by checking for horizontal looseness/instability. If there's a lot of "shake/wobble", replace the spindle or rebuild it - and remember, lots of good grease! Good luck, hope that helps.

If there is any movement you should replace the spindle bearings.
