Go with the Arnott struts. I replaced the the one leaky rear strut myself. Sure enough the other one went out a few weeks later. My advice is do both, it's only a matter of time before the other goes. You only have to do the rodeo once and it's over, until the front ones start to leak. Like the other writer indicated, the exhaust is the only troublesome obstacle, not rocket science just a little time consuming the first time. You'll need a couple specialty sockets, cost about $10, if you don't have them in your tool box.
