Carefree Pioneer Awning conversion

I'm looking at replacing my current Carefree of Colorado Fiesta FX awning because my springs are broken. I'm considering getting the Carefree Pioneer Arm set #971501WHT. I have a 96 model awning so I can't just get the Pioneer Upgrade Kit as that's just for 97 and up Spirit and Fiesta awning arms.

Has anyone changed over to ether the whole Arm set or have a 97 and up awning and removed both springs and converted over using Carefree's Pioneer Upgrade Kit? How do you like it compared to the normal spring roll up awning?

I have 2000 so I just had to replace the ends.
I like mine and would do it again, its easy in and out operation.
I made a crank that fits my cordless drill which makes it even better.

We did the same when our spring broke for the second time. Do it! Much easier than trying to grab the strap with the puller thingy and it is positive locking. No more messing with the arm locks or replacing the stupid lock and unlock slider when it breaks after about three uses.
