I don't think there is a set mileage you can expect to get but I would say around 90-100k. Im thinking of getting monroe reflex's.

I am 40K and I'm getting some tire bounce unloaded, pulling a trailer it seems fine. It may just be the OEM shocks. Ive played with air pressure and airing down helps some unloaded but it doesnt completely go away. This is the first Ford Ive had and I love it. My old truck a 3/4 ton Chevy would only go about 50K and then the shocks were usually trashed. So I was just wondering. Thanks!

I put over 100,000 on the stock set of Racho's before replacing with Bilsteins. Way over due and ruined a tire with cupping.

I will never wait that long again.

50k they were replaced on our drw 08 but they were probably trashed at about 40k

The truck usually has a trailer attached to it also (up to 24k GCVW)
