Yes, you should consider regreasing the hub. As you disassemble it you might find a bearing surface with some damage or an axle that's bent. Both could cause a binding. But the amount a bearing binding can be felt when riding is very small, very small unless the bearing was WAY over tightened to begin with. I wonder if the binding is something else. perhaps rim/brake related? These causes are FAR more likely to be felt during riding. Report back with your findings please. Andy.
