Aftermarket coil overs miles

I've got 130,000 miles on my Donahoes. No offroading either, sad I know. At what point should I replace them? I know I could have them rebuilt but that's not an option. I may sell them. They seem to be ok.

Just courious how may miles you guys have on your aftermarket setup before rebuilt or replacement.

I have about 125k on my dirt logics, just changed my springs and lower heims. I don't understand how not having the rebuilt isn't an option. That is the cheapest option of all. Are they getting soft? Have you replaced the springs? Any leaks? Heims squeaking? all of that is repairable.

I hardly drive so I go by years. First set of SAW 2.0 went on for 5 years. No issues. I was updating my rear suspension so I went ahead and switched to Kings. I sold my SAW. The guy who bought it ran it w/o a rebuild and hasn't complained.

The ride isn't bad. There is a slight leak on the shaft. I don't have another vehicle so I can send my coils out for repair. The front end does sqweak but I'm not sure if it is the heims or not. The springs are original.
