Re: Strut life
I guess it all depends on how hard you drive your truck and what you use it for. Somebody who keeps their vehicle on pavement and never tows is going to get much more life out of their struts (or other components for that matter), than somebody who drives on rough dirt roads, off roads at all, hauls heavy loads frequently (that are close or over the truck's load limit), and/or tows a lot.
I don't think anybody can tell anybody how long their struts are going to last without knowing how they drive their truck/what they use it for. I mean, the service guy telling you that the struts should last 40,000 miles when your truck has 42,000 miles on it and one is leaking...?...coincidence...?...I think not.
Take it for what it is worth...but I have a little over 112,000 on my truck and still have the original struts. Of course, my truck has spent most of its life on pavement, have only hauled a couple of loads that were close to the load limit, and have only towed smaller things like golf carts and riding lawn mowers.
