Default Replacement Trunk Lift Supports

It's time to replace the trunk lift supports (struts) on my '05 Maxima SL. I see that there are severl brands and even different models within brands of replacement units. Any advice, based upon experience, as to which ones to go with?

It seems that "Strong Arm", "Sibilus" and "Sachs" are the three most commonly marketed brands. Any real difference between them; or go for the best price?

Honestly I don't know, I ordered mine from Amazon because I was already ordering shock and struts etc, so it was all free shipping. Price was decent so I just went for it.

I used the ones from O'reilly they were just as cheap as the ones online. Stablis I believe is the brand. Certainly makes it a lot easier to open the trunk. I replaced the hood ones as well.
