Ultimate Joystick and Button Replacement for Picade 2018

I have seen a few posts of people talking about replacement joysticks and buttons in some of the forums on the net . Can anyone recommend to me the best arcade quality joystick and buttons that are drop in replacements for the current joystick and buttons and provide links if possible? Would I be able to put in a tighter spring and change the ball top to a bat top and get the same results? So far In my brand new picade has button that sticks and a seriously loose joystick with a ball top that turns very easily,

Any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks guys!

I use the Sanwa JLF-TP-8YT Joystick with a 4lb spring. Easy to change out. Also added a GT-Y Octo Gate.

You can get it from https://www.focusattack.com/sanwa-jlf-tp-8yt-joystick/ and order it customized.

Now my buttons I do not like the clicking. I live good quality silent buttons. I use Gold Leaf Push buttons.

It all depends how much you want to invest to get the feel you want really.

Wow that’s awesome thanks for the info!! What is the purpose of the octo gate?

Well it allows the stick to perform better moves like for fighting games ect.
