How long should shocks and struts last (mileage)? I'm going on about 100K on my Focus with nothing replaced and it handles like an old Lincoln Continental...

Best way to test struts/shocks?
Gabriel has some great info on when to replace. Tricky things about shocks & struts is they wear out very gradually so most people dont even know they are worn out until you actually replace them then say... WOW, what a difference! Smilie

Except this time everyone saying Monroe sucks is right. And Gabriel is in the same boat. I guess if you don't mind doing struts every 50,000 miles. I got 180,000 out of the OEM rears on my Subaru.
Here's how to tell if worn out...
