Default Need New Struts

Looking at new front struts and don't know what to get. Saw KYB'* for $60 each. Looking for something that meets even exeeds stock, thought GXP(fe5) might be good but all sites have them listed the same (GXP and SSEi)

What are you guys running for struts??

Im still running stock. Check out rockauto.com they have a lot of suspension parts for our make and model and even for the GXP if you are considering using GXP parts.
