Look at the bearings that are supporting the z axis and make sure there's no play there. Also check the hold down bearings on the y axis car.

I'm assuming you are not experiencing material hold down problems? That you have not changed feeds and speeds and that your tooling is of proper type for the job and very sharp?

Check the runout of your router bearings, a few thousandths there will cause problems.

One last thing I've had happen was a buildup of "crud" on the rails while cutting some plastics. Had to scrape the rails clean to keep the bearings rolling smooth.
