I aired all four of mine up yesterday while doing my spring maintenance. I too had noticed the steering seemed to have tightened up some. (I have a suicide knob on it.) None were flat even with only a couple pounds at most in one rear tire but surprising how much difference it makes on steering. Downside is I lost some traction on the slope in the front yard.I did the grease, but you know what? It was the TIRES! All were low and the right front was completely flat! I obviously should have spotted this. I am grateful for all the advice.
On a side not I bought a low pressure gauge at Tractor Supply a few years ago. Comes in real handy for tractor tires to get a more accurate reading compared to a standard pressure gauge. This is the one I have:
