Window spring tension

Hi folks, at my ends here, but how do you fix the tension on one of those knob-style crank out windows? There's a pronounced 1/8" gap on the non-crank side, even when the knob is screwed tight. The seal feels fresh and pliable. If anything, the seal is more "used" at the crank side of the window, which makes sense as that side is holding all the tension.

Every now and then I spray WD40 on both ends of the mechanism and the hinges to loosen them up. If that doesn't work, could have a worn out bushing on the end that doesn't close.
