When I first installed the joystick it worked great, but I did notice the slight stiffness issue that others have mentioned. So, I decided to swap out the springs as suggested. Only problem is now it won't work with either spring. It acts like the joystick is constantly being pushed a certain direction, which also happens when no joystick is connected. The original still works, so I'm not sure if it's a connector issue as they do fit differently. Not sure if anyone else has experienced this and can share some enlightenment, but I have spent multiple hours trying to fix this and it is a pain to put back together, so I'm kinda done with it. Even if it was something I did, it should not have broken that easily. 5 stars if it were easier to swap out springs and have it still work.
