different shocks last different lengths of time. most of the time, the more you pay for the shock, the better it is, and longer it will last. keyword -> MOST. Rawkon has gone through many differnt shocks, so he should be able to get you a good idea.
Ya i blew up my stock shocks, i had oil commin out of em, then i bought procomp es3000 they lasted a while until they started makin crazy noises everytime i hit a bump. Then i got my rough country 2inch leveling kit which came with the heckethorn shocks, I really liked those it was a real stable ride until i bent my front passenger shock on a 4x4 moderate trail in big bear. (i didnt know it was a 4x4 moderate trail until it was too late). So after that i bought Fabteck, they where alright about as good as procomp 3000's. But after jumping my truck several times and a lot of trail running i once again had to buy new shocks. So this time im runnin rancho rs5000's and i love em i done tons of trails and hard running on them and they still feel like they are brand new.
