    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..
