Time for new struts...what brand?

I've waited long enough and I'm ready to buy some new struts for my 2007 Murano S AWD. Do you guys recommend I go back with OEM or aftermarket? I don't want to spend a fortune, but I want a good ride returned.

I need new struts and shocks for my 07 as well. Did you find anything worthwhile? Not sure what to go with.

I believe the Nissan OEM is KYB and I replaced mine with KYB on both front and rear from Rock Auto, not sure if they were the exact same mode as the OEM tho. They work fine. Monroe is another choice but the Monroe seems to use SAE bolts and nuts as opposed to metric on the KYB. It wouldn't matter if you don't intend to reuse some of the mounting hardware. I would avoid the cheap ones on Ebay or Amazon unless you don't want to keep the car for long.

I did KYB in my 07. They were fine, felt like the OEM shocks, which I thought were good.

Your choices are quite limited.
