Trail changes make some difference. Terrain, temps and such will add to the time.

The ones they eat like candy are the "remanufactured" axles, and used axle from the junk yard. Now that I have a source for brand new axles that aren't terribly expensive..... a street rig ought to get close to 100k from a brand new axle - off-road will get less. Depending on a lot of factors - tire size, type of terrain you go on. Off-roading will destroy a lot of stuff faster - wheel bearings tend to get water in em..... axle boots get torn - same for ball joint boots....

I just noticed you're in Whidbey; take a ferry ride over to the mainland; there are enough people here that would "supervise" your first replacement. If I have the time on a coming weekend, you can do it in my driveway.
