Hypothetical question about OEM struts wearing out sooner with springs. Everyone says they'll wear out quicker because the shock will ride slightly lower than it was designed to do, how much faster is this wear going to take place?

I know there are many variables here. Road condition, loading, driving style, etc, etc. But if a stock shock were to last say 90,000miles, if someone went with a not-so aggressive drop. Say 10mm, are the EDC shocks going to last 50% life, 60% or what?
