RG550 and switchcraft jack

i have a 95' RG550 and the long barrell type jack, it's really bad and disconnects all the time and the cable is very loose inside it, i've read that the best replacement is a switchcraft jack.
found this one on ebay http://www.ebay.com/itm/SWITCHCRAFT-...item4633dd6b7d
will it fit the hole? no drilling neccerary? or there is something else better than it?
