Is there any advice for a controller that has had this repair, but continues to drift? I have done this repair successfully many times, and now i have a controller that (with 2 different replacement parts) continues to drift.

Is there a reset or config I can do?

Drift issues are a different problem you would need to solder a new joystick box to fix that this is for loose or damaged thumb sticks

I used a cotton ball on my Xbox one Elite to fix drifting issues.

Does anyone know the correct SKU for the joystick box for the Model 1537 in particular? And any link to purchase it. Thanks
