Well, lets think about that with some logic though also.....
People that run stock suspension also are not doing a lot of aggressive auto crossing or road courses. So they won't have any issues
People that do push the cars hard have had to update the suspension to coil overs. Once you start pushing and driving hard, things break, hence the saying, you have to pay to play
Also, sometimes things break because the ride height is set too low, or improper preload on the springs or both.
