Also check the temperature rating for the caps.  The temp
rating can give you some insight into their reliability.  I'd
never drop back to a lower temp rating for an electrolytic
in a power amp.  Obtaining caps with higher temp ratings
could provide some improvement in reliability and therefore
life expectancy.

Electrolytics can deteriorate with time--even time sitting on the
shelf--so surplus ones should be checked as far as manufacturing
date as well.
