Default high mileage Bilsteins

How long do you think shocks (or struts) can last? My 207k, 2wd., Blazer has the original yellow Bilsteins on it. The ride is still very good, even at freeway speeds, when loading up the suspension with high speed dips, the Bilsteins act like they have plenty of life left. Sooner or later I'll replace them but I'm also of the mind set of using it all up, wanting to see how far it'll go.

Finally answered my own question somewhat. Coudn't figure out what suspension package I had but finally the 'ZW7" code gave it away. Premium Touring suspension. Everything is a trade off but all I can say is the Premium Touring suspension is going strong. Well done Chevrolet.

Hard to go wrong with Bilsteins, who make the KLM shocks I put on mine.
