    how long lasting are factory parts?

    I have a M6 2000 Formula. It has about 58k miles on it. I drive it pretty hard at times for fun. But who dosent Anyways, how long did factory parts like brakes(pads), shocks, struts, clutch, plugs last you guys? Not counting those who just changed them out to upgrade to performace stuff.

    The only thing I've ever done was change tires, alignment, replace oil, top off other fluids if they were running low, and replaced the fuel filter. I'm about to change my shocks/struts cause they are getting squeeky and have the shop check the brakes(no squeeks in braking or problems braking yet). Is this normal wear for an LS1 or does mileage vary per person?

    It all varies on driving habits and climate conditions.Drive hard it all goes drive easy it all will last.front pads will usually get 30000miand rear around 50000mi.clutch will usually go 100000to 150000,plugs I personally do them every 30000 cause I don't buy into the bullshit of they will last up to 100000.

    Any reason in particular that this was posted five years after the fact?

    I think he is having fun with a LawDog post and being sarcastic.
