in my household there is 3 switches, 5 of those joycons have had drift and i have replaced all the sticks with 3rd party replacements. It really annoys me and its has put me off buying a Switch Lite
Why not just clean them with some electronic contact cleaner?
Replacing the ENTIRE analog stick is not necessary, and a huge waste of time and money. It's like replacing the engine to refill the oil tank, or replacing your socks rather than washing them.
I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.
