Exclamation Koni Shocks

About to purchase a pair of used Koni shocks, what kind of mileage/life expectancy can you get out of them?

I do understand this is based on how hard the previous owner pushed them to. Just looking for a general ballpark on when I should expect to replace them again.

I ran a set of Koni yellows in the past for over 50k miles, when the shocks where removed to install coilovers they still seemed to be in great shape.

This is really dependent on previous use/setup and operation. Please note that the original factory warranties are only applicable to the initial purchaser.

Jay is very correct on the warranty. That is something you will want to keep in mind when buying used shocks.
