Hi Tony, I have had Ohlin,Works and now Wilbur's.
The Ohlins were great but I think the Wilbur's are better because the 
distributors for Wilbur seem to have all the shocks built to the customer 
where as a lot....NOT ALL...Ohlins distributors will just sell you a shock 
off the shelf.

I purchased mine in December from John Borella who is a MOA ambassador,does 
show quality paint(specializing in BMW) and is a distributor for Wilbur 
shocks,Staintune etc.

>Do all aftermarket shocks require 12,000 mile rebuilds?

I figure that 25K is about the norm.
