So, I ended up getting some KYB's and 4 new strut mounts. Altogether everything came to $502 shipped, which was pretty much my budget. I know they'll ride a bit harsher, but honestly, anything is better than the blown and leaking struts I have now. My Lexus rides like a beat up '79 Ford pickup right now. I'm going to install them in the next few weeks, I'll keep you guys posted on the results. Thanks again for all the advice/input/wisdom!

If you want really good struts, i would get the KYB-GR2 Excel struts and then get the MOOG spring coils if needed. I have monroe quick struts on my car which is a 1992 lexus es300 and they're fine but i have friends
who have told me the KYB's are better when it comes to struts. Obviously in a perfect world, OEM
is the way to go, but who goes to dealerships anymore. it's so much more expensive, but the trade off
is that they know what they're doing since all they deal with is Lexus. Either way, KYB's are solid from what i hear.

I heard the KYB's are good. Did you get the struts and mounts from KYB? did you get shocks also
or do they come as one unit? i heard that the best spring coils are made a company called Moog.
have you heard of them?
