before I replace the coils. Is there anything else I can do? I've tighten all screws / new springs / switches work fine. My left one seems normal, but my right one is weak.

Coil sleeve?

Also check the plungers to see if they are mushroomed creating drag.

You can test the coils and other parts before ordering by swapping left for right

Make sure the EOS switch is clean on the weak flipper, and that it does not open until the very end of the flipper stroke.

A bad end of stroke switch wire was once determined by shorting the 2 flipper coil lugs that the end of stroke switch wires connect to. Restoring full flipper strength. If full strength isn’t restored the flipper coil is probably bad.

SirScott thank you. Switch opened before end of flipper stroke. Works great now
