I had this saved in a notepad from when I was going crazy trying to find a set of OEM struts for my B16 Spec-V, I figure someone else may find this info useful somewhere.

These are the Nissan part numbers for the OEM struts, I cross referenced all the trims and found only 2 different sets of part numbers:

Spec-V & SER
E4302ET82B front
E4303ET82B front
E6200ET81B back
E6200ET81B back

All other trims:
E4302ZJ60A front
E4303ZJ60A front
E6200ZJ60A back
E6200ZJ60A back

Retailers will say a strut made for an SER will not fit the Spec-V, but according to Nissan it's the same exact part.

Front Driver
Front Passenger
Both Rears

I am currently running these and I know they fit, they also look very similar to OEM SpecV struts, although they technically don't fit.

Amazon item numbers (if links stop working):
Front Driver: Sachs 313 238 Strut
Front Passenger: Sachs 313 237 Strut
Rear D/P: Sachs 313 239 Shock

Nissan certainly pushes you into the loving arms of coilovers, it's a pain in the ass finding the correct OEM SpecV struts w/out going through the stealership.

I'm about to go on my third pair!

Struts can usually go 50k miles w/out needing replacement, depending on drive habits and road quality of course.

3 sets of struts is about the price of coilovers ~$1,000 and they are more durable, adjustable (you don't need to actually lower if you don't want) and are rebuildable. Unlike struts that just get tossed in the garbage.
