Most durable shocks for rallycross/icecross?

My oem shocks with 70,000 km are starting to leak.

I drive in snow, mud, gravel, & concrete and I need a shock that will last. I also live in a rural enviroment, I woulnd't want to go any lower.

I will be attending some rallycross, autocross, & icecross events this year but all out performance is not what I am looking for.

What shock lasts the longest in your opinion based upon their design (mono vs twin)?

OEM? Koni Yellow? Bilstein HD? Mazdaspeed Shocks? Tokico D-Spec?

Thanks

I've yet to read of any complaints about the durablilty of the Koni yellows during my searches. As far as longevity, I haven't read of any problems there either.

Maybe someone with more knowledge can give better input because now I'm curous.

Would the adjustibility of the Koni yellows put someone out of stock class for rallycross?

Resurrecting the old thread!!
Koni also drops the car about half an inch right? I wonder if the low ground clearance of Rx-8 would be a problem in RallyX. I was watching some rallyX video and it looks really fun! Looks like I will make my RX-8 a daily/autocross/rallyx machine lol

I bet it sucks for the new paint job I just got..
