Strut Replacement

My car has 42,000 miles on it and I was reading a post that recommend replacing them at 50,000 ish miles. Since I am pretty much replacing all of the rear suspension and the front springs I figured I might as well replace the struts now.
Anyone have a some suggestion on which ones. Car is street driven, 1/4 mile tracked twice a month, stick shift, and doesn't see many curves do to where I live.
Here is a link to what some of my options are:

Any help is greatly appreciated.

My recommendation would be to pm JusticePete or Rob@WretchedMS so they could get you dialed in for what you are wanting. BTW, the link comes up with no parts for the car selected.

Thats what I was thinking, just not sure if the stiffer rate is good for drag racing,

They aren't bad in the back for drag strip, but might be a little stiff in front for launch--not terrible though.

I was looking at FE5 to stiffen up; but I also road race and auto cross when not at drag strip.

If too worried about strip; go with coilovers to dial in; or replace with FE4 stock.
