Default Suspension Struts

I need a brand new pair of struts on the front of my 2003 which set is the best for comfort. I prioritize comfort over sport but wouldn’t mind having the car lowered a few inches and I have upgrade my wheels to the Aruba so the noise inside the cabin has increased has anyone put any different insulation in the door panels or will the new struts be a solution.

How do you guys see the price for parts? Fair or overpriced? I am going to change the front wheel bearing as well and I need springs. I've been waiting patiently for the Bilstein B6 I have seen them for $206? I was waiting on tire rack and saw a thread they were restocking around April but I've been putting this off for a while now and it is time. Should I get a lower ball joint when I use a pickle fork to separate the lower control arm? Does anyone have experience with these breaking upon removal? Thanks in Advance

Check Rock Auto, I just looked and the struts are 86.79.
I'm getting ready to redo the entire front suspension on my little cat as a restoration project.
