Re: 5K Struts

How long should one expect the original equipment struts on an '87 5000CS TQ to last?
My car now has 93k+ miles on it with the original struts.  However, recently I've 
noticed the ride quality suffering a bit.  Probably its been deteriorating slowly but
I am only beginning to notice it.

The car seems to 'float or bounce' just a tad more on rough road.  Overall, the car 
still handles and rides very well, but does seem to be a little off par.

What else should I check, bushings, etc. with the suspension?

OEM or other replacement struts?
