Issue with vertical lines and ghosting

Hi All,

I've had my MK3S for a few months now and have been really enjoying it. Lately I've been trying to figure out some issues with vertical lines on the Y axis and some ghosting in general. I added some felt pads under the feet and tried tweaking the belt tension (currently ~255 on X and Y). I was wondering if anyone had suggestions for what to try to help improve the prints (or if this is expected and I should stop messing around with stuff).

I've attached some photos - near the top of the print i dialed the speed down to 50% which seemed to help which makes me assume it's vibration / resonance related but any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Get some Prusament PETG and download the Belt Tension gauge GCODE for your printer (in print library)   the display units are more a measure of drag than then are belt tension.  And do check the grub-screw tightness on the X and Y axii
