2001 Foretravel 320, shock life

Mine has 113K on the original shocks. What is the useful life? Seems like it porpoises more now. Can feel divisions in pavement/bridges a lot more. Original are Koni's. I feel like the original's have to be worn out by now?

Are they the adjustable Koni shocks? Red ones are adjustable, I think.

Does the porpoising last for more than one recovery bounce. If so, the shocks probably need inspection.

Thanks for the info. I will get busy and see if they are red. Did not know that. I just knew they were original.

From what I have seen and heard is that 100k is about the useful life from a Koni or a Bilstein.
