I can't help but think that a dab of lube would help.

Also taking a file and rounding off the edge of all the washers. Ideally they would be the same OD as the tapered portion of the cone with a 45 deg rounded bevel on their edges, least in theory it sounds good.
There is some threads just inside the cushions. Longer studs will cure that. The washers aren't biting in to the cushions at all. This weekend's test will give me a bit more info.
