Big rigs have been using air shocks for a long time, if they didn't last they wouldn't be used, many of those trucks you see on the road have over 400-500k miles.
Better yet, you can buy new air shocks for 100-150 on ebay and other sites... Like I've been saying, you just have to be savvy and avoid the stealerships
