The purpose of the booster springs is release the clutch plates quicker on a downshift, either 4/2 or 3/2. GM Put them their for proper calibration. as far as the low reverse plates . their is a GM bulletin as well as an aftermarket repair for low reverse clutch fatigue. It is caused from the plates releasing too slowly when going from a reverse to drive manuever. In 1996 the manual valve and spacer plates were changed to correct this . the aftermarket drills a small exhaust hole in the low reverse piston too help exhaust oil after the shifter is put to drive range . However they leave the low reverse checkball out. (the one in the case capsole.
