I spoke with the brain behind TruCenter and he explained a lot of things. He recommended both Safe T Plus and TruCenter...of course. He worked for Safe T Plus for 20 years and was with Blue Ox since the beginning of the TruCenter.
Both Safe T Plus and TruCenter have the return to center capability for the shock type. Roadmaster Reflex does not. The Reflex it's just a regular shock with a spring wrapped around it. It provides 230 lbs of pressure which is a little too much for the F53 chassis.
He also mentioned that even though Steer Safe works, it's way outdated. They haven't changed a thing in 30+ years and 400 lbs of force is too much for the king pin and steering. He also mentioned a couple of other issues but can't remember...it was a lot of information.
160 pounds is all that's needed to help with all of the issues we are faced with our F53 chassis. Where TruCenter wins over Safe T Steer is that it's easier to get on the road since there is no adjustments after install and of course the center on the fly feature.
I mentioned all of the problems that some folk were having with previous models of the TruCenter and he said that they had to tighten tolerances and install beefier solenoids.
