    Out of curiosity, do Bilstein after market shocks wear out like standard dampers do? Has anyone had to replace a leaky Bilstein shock basically? And any indication of the type of mileage one would get out of a set?

    2 years warranty but out of the hundreds of sets we've sold we've had less then a handful of B4's leak and none of the B6/B8's leak.

    Can you, that's new to me, though is it cost effective?

    You can get most shocks refurb'd, but the price is the question Joe (as you've guessed).
