    life expectancy of Eibach/bilstein setup

    I have this spring/shock setup. My Camaro has 85000 miles and I live in FL where the roads are good and I avoid big bumps. Hard to tell if they need replacing as it is such a stiff setup. Maybe it seems it little looser. How do I know and does anyone have any experience with these parts wearing out?

    how old are your springs/shocks? I had GMS lowering springs (basically eibachcs) and SLP-spec Bilsteins. The Bilsteins were very stiff until I smashed through some bumps and then they got a little looser and more comfortable. But some 25k later, I was still using and abusing them. The Bilsteins should have a lifetime warranty.
