Factory struts will last a fair while(think many thousands of miles/km) but won't be great in the handling department.
Just get a decent pair (just quality gas type shocks/struts) and keep em til they're toast!

My factory struts lasted only about 6000kms before their first replacement. (warranty) The second set lasted to about 50,000kms before they were leaking all over again. I wouldn't imagine they would last very long with a 1.8" drop, but that is just from my experience. Maybe our cold winters have something to do with it....
