first off do you have suspension mod, like lowering springs?
well if you are not lowered the shocks should be able to last you for a long time, at least 100k miles. that is given that your driving condition are favorable. the life of wear item such as a shock is very dependent on the driving condition. if the streets and area you live in has rough roads with alot of pot holes etc... your shocks will not last as long. so the final answer is, you should know if your car needs shocks from your own driving habits and area.
