Experiencing uneven layers

Recently my Prusa i3 MK3S hasn't been performing up to the quality standard it did when I first got the kit and assembled it. I've printed quite a bit in the 6 months I've owned it, and it's starting to show issues of uneven layers.

I re-did the calibration wizard, I checked the tension of the belts, replaced the nozzle, made sure the hot end was secure, adjusted the extruder gear tension, replaced the PTFE tube, etc. I feel like I've done everything to fix this issue, but it's still happening regardless of the filament or slicer I use.

I've attached pictures to show the issue. I feel at a loss and am not sure what to do.

RE: Experiencing uneven layers

did you check the over all machine for screw tension (loose screws)?

I tightened everything I could... Unfortunately I'm still experiencing issues. I'm not really sure what to do.

RE: Experiencing uneven layers

Me either from here, all in all it doesn't look terrible, but theirs so many things it could be, from the surface its sitting on to a firmware update.

have you tried slowing the print down and see if that has an effect? it could even be a specific print, have you been experiencing the problem with a variety of prints or do you keep trying the same one?
