Shockers???

I was just wondering roughly how long you should go before your shockers are goosed? I have just had to replace my rear ones, the thing is my car is only 3 years old with 24000 miles on it, so is this normal? It is an STI so I know they're harder sprung, and I do travel on alot of A and B roads but surely they should last a little bit longer than this? To make things worse to my knowledge they have already been replaced before off the previous owner!!!!
Cheers

Re: Shockers???

cheers mate
Thats how I noticed mine it wasn't effecting the handling just a constant knock, at first I thought it was comming from something I had in the boot rattling around. I hope it doesn't re-occur as it was done under warranty and would imagine it to be expensive!!!!!!! I tried that link you posted but it said the web page had expired.
