Default Which Struts/Shocks to purchase

Need recommendation of which shocks/struts to purchase for my 97/ w M-Technic package. I understand that the M-Technic came with a sport suspension. I want to stay as close to stock as possible. Thanks!

Get the bilstein sports. They rule. (a bit stiffer than stock)

For what it's worth a Koni tech person told me they design their sport adjustables to START where the OEM sports are set to, meaning the softest Koni setting is equivalent to the stock sport setting. I believe the rears are adjustable too, but mostly in theory for our cars as it is a PITA to get to.
