Sensa trac / Motorcraft & replace the front struts also

I was looking at some possible OEM equivalents:

Gabriel Guardian
Gabriel Ultra
Monroe SensaTrac

There is also a KYB model for around the same price, but I've never heard of that brand before. I recently put Monroe's on my wife's Odyssey and they seem fine, about like new OEM shocks. I've read good things about Gabriel Ultra's too. Appreciate any suggestions or experience with any of these shocks.
Monroe's Senatrac's work pretty good. Have you thought about Motorcraft one's also? I'd also change out the front struts too.
