2001 CR-V Question: Which Strut/Spring combo would you recommend?

Thanks for welcoming me to this group.
I am an original owner of a 2001 CR-V EX with 140K miles. I believe the struts are original and would like to replace. I see this is a easy DIY project and I'm pretty handy. I am looking for a recommendation for replacement strut/spring combo for the fronts so the car rides like original. I just got new tires and front end bushings.

Usually the Monroe QuickStruts are good. Just be sure you keep your receipt as sometimes you get a Defective one. Get an alignment after installing them. Give it a couple of weeks for them to settle. Monroe are a bit stiffer than KYB.
