Are you looking for a performance upgrade or OE replacement? I've had great luck with rock with regards to price. 90k miles isn't a lot for a shock/strut, I would be surprised if they are already worn out (of course that depends on how hard you have driven the vehicle). To do the job safely you'll want to get a spring compression tool or borrow one for your local auto parts store. When you release that tension it can be dangerous.
