If you install these type of valve cap sensors you must replace the rubber valve stem on the inner duals with a stronger metal valve stem. I was motivated after I had an inner dual tire go flat on a trip last spring. I discovered it a a rest area and had no idea how long it ran flat since the last time I had checked the tires was when we started driving that day. The tire was ruined, but I caught it before it can apart. Also I had run the single outer tire in an overload condition for at least several hours.

I had the same thing happen to me on our way back from Florida. Now I know why the truckers slap an iron bar on their tires as I could not tell by looking that the inner tires were flat. I will be much more vigilant in the future. These sensors will also give out an overheat warning.

Did NOT install the spring assist kit. Wanted to do the Koni's first to feel the difference they made.

Since we're so happy with the Koni's, we may never do the spring assist.

If I am interpreting the title correctly, the spring assist kit is mainly to handle extra load. The Koni shocks should reduce sway and bouncing. An air ride suspension system should reduce the rear seat ride problem. Stiffer front and rear roll bars should reduce body roll.

I'm not even sure now what the spring assist kit was specifically for! Some other info is now occupying my brain!
