Injector life span

When do these need to be rebuilt? I've got 290,000+ on my motor and will be pulling the injectors to install new o-rings. Thinking while I have them out maybe I should rebuild them too. What are the thoughts on that?
Thanks.

Starting to blow white smoke, not all the time but enough. I think it's either the injector o-rings or turbo seal. I was going to do both. Thoughts?

Mainly when it is sitting at idle for a few minutes, then on acceleration it blows a bit of white smoke. I've been noticing it smoking just sitting at idle also. Seems after I drive it for a few miles it will go away, then if it sits and idles for a bit it comes back.

Easier to take the hood off? Is there a rebuild kit you recommend?
