Economy make huge difference for sure. Since I did not buy shock in last 20 years - I have no idea how much they cost in USA, but I am still comparing economics, where in my native Poland people are still buying "rust buckets" and put 2-3,000 hr to repair them as the pricing still makes it economical.
In California fender-bender will put 10 years old car on junk yard as repair will exceed car value. We have no rust.
So even if shock absorbers would have drain plugs for oil change, I doubt Californians would pay mechanics $500 for shock oil change on regural basis.
And again, our shocks last 300,000 miles easy.
