Definitely Bilstein. Just expect to drop a fairly pretty penny on them.

Go adjustable if you have the money, I wish I would have to begin with...

You can go with Koni's on Bilsteins for the best shocks and struts. I believe both give you a lifetime warrenty on them as well. Just a side note, I have a set of single adjustable yellow Koni's on sale for $500, down from $680.

I have the KYB AGX adjustables and they do a great job.

they have whole 0 miles on them, unless you want me to count the miles in between shipping. The Koni's were shipped back to me, because the buyer was impatient with the shipping time and bought another set before mine could get shipped to him in time. So these were sent back to me and I need to get rid of them off my inventory.
