Do you keep the clutch depressed while waiting at a stop light? That will heat it. Do you shift often or are you on a highway most of the time? Are you running events and hard shifting. Do you ride with your left foot on the pedal?
All these thing contribute to heat and "wearing" out.
Some of my antique cars have graphite TOBs. Very poor life compared to the new ones.
I took 3 Mitsubishis up to 200,000 miles and never replaced a TOB. I had many 50s and 60s MT cars and never replaced a TOB. I had a 400+ HP Talon and never replaced a TOB. The FRS went through two of them. Yes they are a wear item but even some wear items are just crap no matter how they are used.

@Sniepster

I would not wait as continued wear will also scratch up the shaft. Also risks clutch drag and grinding gears.

Thank you all for the inputs. Just placed an order with Verus for the fork, TOB and pivot. Should get here in 2 weeks and will mount them as soon as they're here. Will keep you all updated with pictures when I drop the gearbox.

Basically, it's a wear item, but it should NOT wear faster than a clutch friction disc. Like a timing belt driven water pump, it should be changed while you're in there replacing the main item.

I had mines replaced at about 40k miles. Since I had a 2013 BRZ, it went through the valve spring recall which is an engine out procedure. Dealer was cool, they just charged me for parts + 30min labor rate for replacing the TOB. Clutch was still good. It was making a slight noise that changes when the clutch is engaged/disengaged. Then again it was my first manual trans car.

UPDATE

I have finally managed to get the parts and mount them. This is a PSA!!! If you start getting a light rattle coming from under the shifter and a slight squeak audible on the outside CHANGE YOUR TOB. DO. NOT. WAIT.

My TOB was absolutely shot, it span freely if you played with it. DO not wait for the TOB sound to get worse, it's already too late!

I have also installed the Verus fork and pivot. Will come back in 50k miles to let you all know how the TOB is doing lol

I had my TOB changed when I had my recall. During that time, I knew something was up. So I changed not only the TOB but the clutch, the flywheel and pressure plate. Good thing I did that cause, I requested the parts to be returned and low and behold the pressure plate fingers where all rusted, the springs on the clutch were rusted and the TOB was rusted and had a screeching sound when it spun.

The rust is meaningless. They are not a sealed system so water does get up in there. They look nastey but it has no affect o operation at all.

I would also like to add that after i changed the tob, fork and pivot the car is more "driveable", first and second gears are slightly less crunchy when cold and the clutch pedal feels softer.
