New Suspension - Bilstein vs OEM/Sachs

At 108k miles, my rattling bones are saying it's time for new shocks and struts. I do not have any leaks and can get more service out of them if I wanted to.

Bilstein -- potential longer service life and better handling. A bit cheaper than OEM.

OEM -- original ride but pricey in comparison.

Sachs -- harder to find but about the same price as Bilstein when I finally found a source. Oem provider, so should be same ride for a few hundred less but not as good a warranty as either oem or Bilstein.

What's everyone's thoughts....GO!
