Should I get stiffer springs as well. It also had the two different rides, the touring ride, and the performance ride. Does this mean I have to get more expensive struts.Thanks
Welcome to the club!
Touring ride and performance ride are for the CCR struts, which are discontinued. You won't find them anywhere, and they are very common to fail anyway. So you'd be fine going with Monroe Sensatracs for your struts for example. Better than OEM performance too.
On the stiffer springs, you don't have to go stiffer, but if you want to you'll have to do all four as well as the sway bars. What suspension do you have now? Check your RPO label on the spare tire cover for FE1, FE2, FE3, etc.
