I now have over 4k miles on my stock Shocks. Should I replace them just because? or if they seem ok, just leave them alone? They are probably shot and I'm just used to it. They have been some brutal miles.

Not sure on the life of factory shocks, I'm still riding with my originals at over 6,000 miles. My riding style is moderate! If I replace shocks, I think I'll go aftermarket.

5+K miles on mine, still doing the job so far … but I don't jump mine or do any of the "kid" stuff to abuse them either , I too will upgrade to some good ones when I do change out, but in all truth with the heavier springs not sure I need the high priced ones now.

for clarification I have aftermarket 350 lb. springs on the rear and the original rears on the front

That was what I was thinking, heck the springs can be picked up for 30 dollars each!

aftermarket shocks are not cheap,but the results are un-real when you get them tuned in.......when the wife can tell a difference that's telling you something.:):)

I have over 6,500 but mostly road miles, I would like to try some new ones but the price scares my away.
