Time for a new hub body?

Hey, I will be doing a 100 mtb race soon and am thinking about replacing the freehub body on my wheels since it has been over two years. They are stock bontrager race wheels. I beleive the hubs where made by DT. Should i worry with it or just go for it without the change?

The freehub is the least stressed bearing on the bike. Is it giving you a problem? If not then leave it alone. Freewheels and freehubs usually last a long time. I've got 25 year old freewheels that work like new.
