Yes. I've had my TST system with the flow thru sensors for 5 years now. It was the first generation of the flow through sensors with the non color display. After about year I notices the housing on the sensors were cracking. I call TST and they said that they had a problem with the plastic compound they were using and they went to a different plastic. I mailed in my sensors and they replaced all 12 of my sensor with the new ones free of charge
A couple of years ago they came out with the color display so I upgraded my non color display to color.
I was on TST website a last months and I noticed that they redesigned the flow through sensors. I called them up to find out what's new about them.
They removed the brass collar from the bottom that had the locking security set screw. So now the sensors are shorter. They also redesigned the internals so now they flow 20% more air. So now you can fill your tires a little quicker. That is the only complaint I have with my flow throughs sensors. The tires fill slow.
I asked if they had an upgrade program where I can send in my old sensors and get a discounted to upgrade to the new ones...they said no
I am very happy with the system and will upgrade my sensors one at time as needed..

Just remember if you get the flow through sensors you must replace your rubber valve stems with metal ones. If you don't, the stem will eventually fail. I was lucky one of my valve stem got a small rip in it and it went flat over night.Not on the highway towing my camper.. I replaced all the valve stems on my truck and camper with metal ones.

I found no other specific thread so I ask here.

Are they staying out from the wheels some?
I have them installed and not sure if it's right
