Any way to "loosen" P360?

So my bro bought me a MAS stick with a P360 in it for Christmas a while back… and that was the only thing I played on for a while, so I was fine with the stiffness of the stick (god this sounds dirty LOL.) Anyway, I switched over to japanese sticks sometime last year, and with the recent release of MvC2 on the next gen consoles, I wanted to try my happ/MAS again, so I gave it a go, now that thing is just too fucking stiff for me. Is it just a matter of tweaking the springs to make this thing looser?

You could buy a looser spring, like the ones in the Happ Competition sticks from Lizard Lick.

Or, if purchasing something isn’t in your best interest for whatever reason, you could try this:
