I run lakewood 90/10 on my car, but I think the consensus here is that everyone prefers the strange adjustables

He hit the nail on the head! Strange 10 ways are hands down the best AFFORDABLE front strut.

But you if you want the BEST... there is only Santhuff! Better break out the $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

Free leaks are included also.

Strange work very well have no real issues other than weight.

Strange here and no complaints, only cost $40 more than 90/10s and they are 10x better. Not a fan of QA1 stuff.

New times coming soon.....

Strange 10 ways on mine also. I had the 90/10's, but after being in the car since '93 they became "stiff".

Another vote for the Strange struts.

Shopping for a 11-12 GT Prem, Brembo, 6 spd.....

Strange 10 way adjustable's but the only bad part is weight.

With the qa1's there a aluminum threaded body strut thats obviously lighter but I heard lots of problems with them leaking.

I say go with the strange.I just ordered my rear coil over setup with strange shocks and springs.

Don't get shook of a little bone stock 302 short block!!
