Default strut recommendation for combo with tein s-tech

I have an 05 sti and the struts are now clunking in the rear. When I purchased the car it already had s-tech springs on it. I know they are hard on struts (some claim that they are not) and was wondering if anybody had a similar set up and could recommend a beefier strut with perhaps a little more dampening (or adjustable) to tone down the bounciness. Thank you in advance for any advice you can give.

Check out Feal, they revalve stock STI struts to a number of different settings depending on how you will use them. They recommend several very good spring options as well. You will be able to send in your old struts for several $hundred off the price too.

I have Tarmac valved Feals with RCE yellow springs and they are great for the street and occasional track use.
