Suspension life

I know that this is going to be a broad question with a broad answer, but what is the average suspension life expected with typical city driving? Like I said I am not expecting anything exact but typical range.

I have 92K on mine and my rear hits the bumpstops when I go over speed bumps. I am wondering if its about that time to change.

Suspension Life? Shocks and Springs will vary.

With 82k on those shocks, i will bet you would be amazed at what a new set will feel like. Don't care how it was driven.

New shocks will also make older springs feel newer, but will defintely show some wear under load, like with a trailer on back. I generally don't let shocks or struts get past 75k. Springs are more tolerable.

possibly right.. i tow a bass boat and really it doesnt feel like i need new struts or whatever.... btw. what would be a good pair to buy for the $?? everything is stock on the truck... i am assuming in the back its just leaf springs. this is a tacoma btw.
