I tried the previous method of replacing dead switches with the Racon's from Digikey, but felt that it was lacking with the switches not having any clicks.

LaserBear's new kit replaces the top shroud of the joystick assembly to accommodate more readily available switches:

Install is pretty simple, I've had to tinker with it for a little as a switch was binding occasionally, but highly recommended for any dead pad.

I saw this, and I'm interested. I have one pad that's going bad.

Too bad you didn't post this in Neo support. No one checks this board.

With the different measurements, is the resulting pad going to feel the same as stock?
