I have the same exact setup and mine did the same exact. What I found was that the two stainless steel columns were filled with dust and debris and causing it to gum up the movement. The two stainless steel shafts has a brass busing that is supposed to keep dust and junk out but, the smaller particles will eventually work its way in and accumulate causing the jerky issues. After I took them apart and cleaned it works great again. Another thing to look for if your lift gets really hard to move up and after the router has been running a while. The cause of that is over tightening of the router shoe. It should just be snug when tighten and not gorilla grip tight. HTH.
