Default Wich struts should i pick?

I'm in need of new front struts for my 94 ssei.

Please help me pick and with detail on why one is better than the other.

My three choices are:

KYB - strut plus

Monroe - quick strut

Gabriel - ready mount

P.*. my driving style is more aggressive than soft

-thanks

And I'd suggest against the quick strut.

Quick struts come with SE level springs on them. SSEi'* came with heavier springs. Therefore upon changing your struts you could go with a quickstrut and have a better feel from the new strut and a weaker spring.

Ah sux i already ordered them, but i think i'll still be happy. i don't trust the old spring anyway i've been drivin around on 'em with them bottoming out for a month and half so they're prolly crap now.

I'm due for new struts all around, so I wonder how those struts ended up working out for him- I see the last post was in April. Update?
