Upgrading Struts Replacement Brand

2005 AWD SEL


Still have the factory Struts in my 2005 SEL AWD, and suggestion's on what's good upgrade strut.

I was thinking about going with KYB Strut Plus.

No Freestyle experience, but I bought Monroe SensaTrac strut/spring combos on my 96 T-bird and the ride was too bouncy/mushy for me, I wish I hadn't wasted my money on them. I don't think too highly of Monroe anymore although they are popular. I recently bought shocks for my 03 F150 and I went with Bilstein, haven't installed them yet but that seems to be a top quality brand.

I'd go with a better strut than Monroe. I replaced my struts and coil over shocks in the rear with Monroe and I can feel every little bump in the road.
