Shock-ing question

I like my Boge Turbogases myself.  Not harsh, I believe they have a
lifetime warranty of some sort but I'm not sure, and not too expensive.
I don't buy the Bilstein "good for life" thing.  At twice the price, for
me, I'd rather change Boges every 75K, or whatever, then trust a Bilstein
with 75K on it vs. a Boge with 0K.  I've seen a lot of posts on this board
and the s-car-list of blown Bilsteins... I bet they're no more reliable
than Boges, except that people think they must be because their original
Boges needed replacement and their "brand new" Bilsteins with 10K are
just fine.
