If they are still working they should be 12.5-13ohms or so, if they are much higher 15 or 16 or more, there shot. Home depot sells a kit that has 2 elements and 2 thermostats for $30 that might be worth doing while your at it if you have a few extra bucks.

I found out that my father in law set the thermostst too low for the grandkids. I raised it to 150 now I never run out of hot water.
