KYB GR2s are nice, and not too pricey. You can find them on ebay, usually for 2WD cars but those sit lower.

What are your driving habit like? I ended up with some beefier (supposedly) ones in the back of mine, since I carry a lot of weight often, but the ride isn't that great. There are some that carry you smoothe as glass, and some that keep you low to the ground & smack you with every bump ...

The GR2's are nice - but they do not make an exact replacement for the 4WD struts - ie they are not adjustable, and will ride lower than the stock ones. Monroe makes an exact replacement that includes the height adjusters and everything. It is also possible to replace just the strut cartridge from what I understand - cheaper, and retains the stock package with height adjustment. Little more work tho.
