Default Front Struts - What should I go with

Well, it is time for me to get front struts on the car. She'* bouncing fairly good now and I want to get it buttoned up before travelling too much. I have new rears 10k ago but the fronts needed changing then, and I have let them go. With my inspection due as well and an oil change, i figure I'll just take it in for a complete tuneup, assuming the inspection doesn't find anything too bad.

My question is, what struts do I go with? i heard someone mention that Monroe had some new performance oriented ones, which would be my preference, but I haven't looked into it yet (i'm at work right now.) I would like something more performance oriented. i will be doing endlinks at the same time as this. I would like slightly better handling in the corners if possible as the last time I took a turn fast i kicked the rear end out (true story)

So what would be the suggested Strut to go with?

car: 1993 SSEi, ELC, no CCR, pretty much stock.

Monroe Sensatracs. Monroe-Matics are also good, but don't have the lifetime warranty like the Sensatracs.
