G20 profile keycaps are flat, but I'm not sure if they're made anymore.

if you're actually reading other people's posts on geekhack in 2020 you're doing something wrong

I have a problem, so basically my spacebar was rattling so I lubed the stabs with silicone spray, with a paintbrush of course. It worked good. my problem is on one side of the spacebar it's still rattly, on the right side but not on the left. Now here's where things get weird, when I flip the spacebar, the side where the rattling is which is the right, becomes okay but the rattling flip and goes to the left. So now I'm thinking whether it could be the keycaps or not. I have tested it out and yes if I use the spacebar the other way around, meaning the incline of the spacebar is facing inwards. The left side rattles, when I use it normally the right side rattles. I did try pressing the spacebar all the way across the whole thing while applying the same pressure during spacebar flipped and not and yes what I said is true. Sooooo could it be that the keycaps of the spacebar is causing this? and if so what is the fix?
