I’m assuming these were used live valves? Know the approximate mileage? Non-rebuilt?

Yes, used. 15,000 miles on them, not rebuilt. I bought them to have rebuilt so that I may swap them out when my current ones need rebuilding. I sold the Eibachs for a couple hundred bucks as I already had a set and didn't need them. They will be going to TSW Offroad soon.

Was the set front and rear?

This shock replacement or rebuild process sounds like such a headache. I am sure there are many owners like myself that daily drive our trucks and don't have time, garage or tools to swap out our shocks and wait for a replacement. I think when the time comes, I'll just have to buy a new set then have my old ones rebuilt and keep them

Just look for a used set to have rebuilt. They pop up every now and then on here and on Facebook groups.

I used TSW for rebuilds and did not have very good luck. The rebuilt front passenger shock leaked oil on day 2. Took ~3 months to get a replacement at their cost. Rebuilt passenger rear shock lasted barely 6 months before losing all compression. The truck never left the pavement (street queen and maybe 2,000 miles on the rear) during any of this time. I would not use them again based on craftsmanship. Worst part was I sent my “perfect” looking grade A shocks to them and received grade B - C in return. Their customer service was good.

Since I could not wait for rebuilds again I purchased new Race Seriers (front and rears). Well worth the price.

Did you do the exchange program or did you send yours in and then they sent out another set they had? Also were the the 17-18 shocks or the 19-20 Live Valves? If I send in my extra set of Live Valves in for a rebuild I want my same shocks back as they look minty.

I sent mine and they sent me a “similar” grade shock. Mine were non-live valve.
