Default 5100 or stock

I thought I would continue this conversation instead of starting a new one. I have an 06 GX

I already have 5100's on the rear with air shocks. I am in the process of gathering parts for the front end rehab and am contemplating 5100 struts or new OEM struts to retain ride settings at least on the front. What does everyone think about ride quality of the 5100 vs new stock?

It looks like new OEM fronts aren't much more than 5100's either. Only $146 on this site and others.

I am very happy with the ride quality with my 5100s. Better then stock with the air springs. The key is not to use the height setting to get extra height.
