Recoil spring replacement

Have this Ultra Carry II in .45. it's an older model seen about 2500 rnds. I've been working on it lil by little. Should recoil assembly be replaced or do I just grab outer spring from Kimber? Everything else is good. It functions fine. Did notice my shells were flying further than my buddies? I appreciate the input.

I second that. No need to replace the rod if it's not damaged. I usually also replace my firing pin spring at the same time as the recoil spring.
If everything seems under control, you're just not going fast enough.

Ya... thanks. Talked to Kimber service. They sent me out a outer recoil spring. $7.50. not bad. Assembly $42.00. According to them the other guide rod spring needs no replacing...just the #18 outer.
