How many miles on Bilstein's?

I currently have 86,000 miles on my Bilstein shocks. How many miles should I expect to get out of these? None are leaking or anything like that. I just like to keep things up to snuff. I checked their website and from what I read they state they are good for life. I hope so. My Jeep has 138,000 miles on the ticker and its still great.

Of those of you who have them, how many miles are on yours?

I replaced the rears with MLLs, my fronts are still bilstein HDs. I may go back to them at all 4 corners, my front end is really floaty like I said- which could mean they are done-zo

Re: How many miles on Bilstein's?

Nothing lasts forever; lifetime is the product warrantee, but they slowly wear out and old ones are certainly not just like new ones. Floaty front end is probably due to worn spring isolators and springs, end links, sway bar bushings, not worn Bilsteins after 36k. I replaced the isolators and it tightened up the ride noticably after 70k. I replaced all sway bar bushings and end links at about 60k which also made a bid difference.

Re: How many miles on Bilstein's?

Ive got 132,000 on the factory bilsteins in my 98 s10.

I would say 138,000 miles on a 2006 wk hemi is a great acheivement and comforting to hear.
