EDC + Springs miles check in

For those who have EDC and springs(aftermarket) can you please chime in with your current mileage?
I remember there was a fuss over how long these EDC shocks will last

I'm curious to see what the longevity is, too. On the VWs I know with new springs you can count on maybe 10k before you need a whole new setup. Then again, these ain't no VW's!

I think it might be from The Gods Must Be Crazy. It's been a LONG time since I've seen it, but I know I've seen whatever movie its from, and I laughed as hard then as every time I see his sig.
