If you are comfortable with a ride quality that is comparable to factory specs, just go with a factory replacement like Monroe. You can pick them up at Your favorite parts house. If you want to improve ride quality, handling characteristics, braking, etc, then go with a premium upgrade from makers such as Koni or Bilstein. You get what you pay for.

Tokico D-spec is what all my friends use and they love them to pieces. I'm ordering my set in a week.

But they're one of the top of the line sets for "normal" cars. That is, cars not track-specific.

Food for thought; if you're not racing or lowering it.. The Koni, bilstein, and Tokico entry level shocks/struts at Autozone and Carquest are good affordable replacements.
