As you can see,those are strong, stout springs with very little travel in them before the coils are completely closed..On an initial build,where the clutch clearances are nice and proper,i'm sure there is no difference if they are there or not in reguards to shift feel.But in the long run,when the clutches start wearing and the clearances open up a bit...due to their design,I just feel that those springs do more harm than good by being there.I could get into more detail,but this thread would turn into bathroom reading material.I have never had any issues by leaving those springs out, and I feel its an improvement by not putting them back in,as far as long term shift quality goes.But this is just my opinion,and they will continue to be future land fill to me.
