Default Tokico D Spec vs. STi struts rebuilt by Feal

Looking for opinions and pros/cons of each. Currently running stock STi struts with Prodrive red springs. New Tokicos are 800 shipped, Feal rebuild I believe is 700 plus shipping. I'm leaning towards the Tokicos at the moment.

I found an ebay seller out of Florida who had a set, must have been sitting on a shelf somewhere. I bought them this morning, figure if I go the Feal route I can sell these no problem.

I think the FEAL revalve is more in the 500$ range.
That's my vote tho

Two words: Adjustable dampers.

Now I wish D-Specs were priced down where they should be, and you can still buy individual struts around the right price point. Note, you can buy two left struts and install them. The only difference is the brake and ABS brackets are welded on to work on the correct side, so the left strut on the right side wouldn't really work for the ABS and brake line. You just need to wire tie them in place. This does allow some purchase freedom though. For example, you can buy front struts for about $80 a piece, just one side though. You buy the front left for $80 and you can buy two at $80 a piece for $160 total. You buy the front right though, and it's $230, no reason, just $230 for the same thing. So...you buy two lefts and get the front pair cheap. You repeat with the rear for what you can find for the rear. I can hop on Amazon right now and package a set of 4 this way for $580. So...yeah...
