The remote resi's will help your shocks from fading on washboards, if you dont mind paying the extra they are definately better. (They hold more shock fluid and separate the oil from the nitrogen)

It certainly does not hurt. More or less it provides more heat dissipation so the shocks don't fade. Heat = wear so eliminating heat is good.
