Question Need recommendation on new struts

Hi,
Just had my car in for 3yr / 30k service. Car is Impreza STi 2006.

I've been told that my front struts are nackered.
I already had all the struts replaced already under warranty about a year ago.

I also had prodrive springs put on at the same time.
I'd like to replace all 4 struts without going to coilovers, but don't want to replace with oem struts either as they are rubbish.

The guy at hypertech recommended kyb struts but I cannot find any website that sells them for my model of car.

Can anyone give a recommendation for a good performance strut that will fit my car?

Thanks,
David

KYB are just subaru ones ! why bother fitting them when they will go again?
Find yourself some decent shocks fella, maybe even coilovers.

KYB "AGX" Ajustable Shocks/Struts. I'm not sure if you can get them for the 06 Impreza.
