Replace struts or just carts???


Can anyone offer advice on front and rear strut replacement on my 87 5kCS TQ?

I had planned installing cartridges only. Mechanic friend got me wondering
about replacing entire struts since the car has 190,000 mi. The suspension
doesn't seem soft, and it sits level. Any comments on how the original
springs hold up?

Since racking up so many miles (all mine) I don't push it as much as I used
to. I'd like a "mild" upgrade from stock, just a little stiffer OK-any
brand/model recommendations? Any brand to avoid? Good price/source?
