Default Refurbishing servos

I have some JR 527 and 537 servos that are about two years old and seem to be getting a little tired. I have had two certified servo failures in flight and managed to save the plane both times. Is it cost-effective to send the whole batch in to JR for checking and refurbishing or is it better to just replace them from ebay? Thanks.

Considering the cost of shipping them to the manufacturer, plus the cost of parts and labor, you could probably buy new servos cheaper.

And they have a brand new warranty!
