Under the rubber boot theres a large ass hex nut 22mm you need to lay the scooter on the side and tighten the nut . Hard to move at first but when you break it loose it will move . Easier when back of scooter is attached to the front . I would put body weight on the back while trying to tighten . Then there also is a spline inside with slots in it on the top where the neck is attached . Sometimes that needs addressed ..a special tool is needed for that . But the nut is the main issue . Once that’s tight put some superlube grease in that spring and area under the rubber boot

I have tightened this big hex nut on top of spring, spline inside the stem is perfectly tight. Still the same issue. Any other ideas?

Well first of all you think it’s tight but it’s not . Due to it’s a reverse thread . So you need to loosen it to make it tight ..(reverse thread on it ..go the other way with wrench
