The factory Bilsteins on my 05 ZR2 were replaced around 100k because they were getting a little mushy, however they were not leaking and still would easily outperform new GM shocks. I've tried a lot of the "good" shocks out there like Edelbrock, Rancho, KYB, Pro Comp, etc and IMHO their really is no good substitute for these shocks, that's why I run them on all my cars. They're are better shocks than even the mighty Bilsteins, but all of them are really expensive and not worth it unless you race your vehicle as a hobby or professionally.
