You'll find a lot of info on the struts in the archives.  I personally 
bought Konis and I really like them.  Others like the boge, which I think is 
standard, but I stand to be corrected.

Don't know about the pads, sorry.  I have metal masters with about 55,000 
miles on them and they're less than half worn.
