Well you don't have struts you have shocks. For normal daily use just purchase a decent set of OE replacement gas charged shocks. A set of 4 can be had for $100-150 at your local auto parts store.

Not a hard job. Support the car after jacking and removing the wheels. (jack stands). hardest thing you might run into is frozen bolts or nuts from many years of water and dirt. PB blaster or similar product is handy to have. Spray the bolts and nuts before you start. Good luck, and be careful.
