Check with Rock Auto for your car fitment, cross reference with manufacturer of the part you are to buy before you order.
I like KYB shocks but also used Gabriel Ultras with good results.
If you don't need to change strut springs and bearings, then just have shocks replaced and do front alignment 50 miles later or so.
This is the type of spring compressor I used when was replacing front shocks in the driveway :)
