Sensen struts are ok. They are stiffer than the factory struts and mimic GT damping. I change them out every 60k because they will wear and start to lose damping ability, especially with any kind of lowering spring. Seals wear, the nitrogen charge starts to foam and break down and the strut rod starts to wear with dirt/dust instrusion. Also the top mounts wear pretty badly after 50-60k and the rubber starts to separate at the top plate.

My next setup will either be KYB Tiburon replacements or the Koni "Yellow" Tiburon strut inserts(adjustable damping). Both have much better damping rates than any of the Elantra options.
