Really depends on how you treat them. Yes you may only be on the street but you could be trying to take corners at 100 or going through massive pot holes.

Life expectancy really shouldn't be a whole lot different than stock.

If they're anything like stock, I would change them around 75k miles. I've been told stock shocks could last upwards of 100k miles, but I don't like to push things to their max. However, I've also heard of stock ones going out between 40-50k miles? Just food for thought..
