Ive got 46k miles on my stock springs and shocks, and they still seem to be in good shape.

My question is how long should I expect to keep the stock shocks, before they fail?

Thanks in advance

If you drive on bumpy roads with lots of freeway driving, my guess is they will start to show signs of wear at 100K miles or more.

This is based on my experience with wearing out my OEM shocks by lowering my car and after 24k miles. hehe

It's going to be a while, and the thing is... They're not just going to wear down one day.

I find they just "slowly" loose their damping gradually. Even with a little wear, they should still be tolerable with your OEM springs.

Just perhaps the car will get more "bouncy".
