How do you know that they are failing without removing them and testing them?

There are plenty of indicators to point you towards failing injectors without actually pulling them out and looking at them.

Possibly the easiest is running through a few cans of diesel purge, if your problem goes away for a while, then reappears it could very well be an injector problem. I'm sure there are more definitive means of doing this.
