I'm right around 1200 miles on them, and so far nothing to complain about. The stiffness hasn't changed, still zero bouncing or anything of the sort. Going lower this weekend.

i know armanduh puts a decent amount of miles on her car because it seemed like she was rackin em up pretty quick if you look at this thread and i know she posted pics of it still slammed on fj yesterday as far as i know still on the racelands so thats the best review anyone has given so far. she seems happy with them i cant wait to try them out if they are a fail im not out too awefully much but im pretty confident that wont be the case

I'm just about to pass 5k (rough) miles.

I'm still very happy with them, haven't noticed any decrease in ride quality nor any bounce.

I did pick up a set of KW variants to replace them when they (inevitably) go. But I've said it before, and I'll say it again, even if they only last half as long as the standard coilover before needing rebuilt, I've still only spent 1/3rd as much.
