Default Airfield Sky Trainer Nose Gear Question

I recently purchased this aircraft and should be receiving it on Monday.

On the meantime I would like to have an idea of what should I do to avoid my nose gear from breaking as featured frequently.

I see some people doing NOT what I would call a mod but just flat out changing the entire nose gear! Not what I'm looking for

I want a stock look with the wheel pants, would it be possible? Can't I just fit a spring for some nose bounce?

Thanks in advance for the input.

The factory nose gears is pretty strong unless you had a hard landing or els it good as is it.

The only part that is an issue was the plastic steering arm. That was replaced with a Dubro 5/32 steering arm.
