What are my rear struts options?

Hello,
I have leaking rear struts (and clunking and knocking), recommended while I had the dealer reprogramed TCM.
Car is bone stock, and would like to keep it so.
I'm leaning toward Nissan OEM ones, I can get the side for $145 to $185 a piece.
I have used Tokiko Blues in my previous 2002 with good results honestly. But since the fronts are OEM I'm more comfortable to match. Monroe were crap in the 2003
Other recommendations?

Bonus question: Springs too or reuse?

Thanks

Shocks in the rear , Struts only in the front.. You really have no choices.. EIther the stock Sachs shocks, or a Monroe or KYb… I did not like any of those so I went with BC Racing Coilovers...

As long as you don't have like over 150k miles.. You can just reuse the springs.. check the rubber isolators for wear though.

Non sports can use the Monroe OEspectrums. I have them all around and have 60K miles on them, much better than stock. The oems are meh for the money.

I used Monroe in a Maxima 2003 and they sucked so much.
I am thinking now about KYB.
