When to re-condition coilovers?

As I understand it good coilover setups (KW v2) can last quite long. I am looking to pick up some used ones but I'm not sure how much mileage on them is too much mileage and when they need to be re-conditioned with new parts, etc.

What exaclt should I watch out for? THANKS!

look for leaks, and make sure the shafts aren't bent or scratched up. Other than that, without putting them on a shock dyno, it's hard to tell if there is something wrong with them
