they are different but im not sure exactly what it is.

megans are way nice for the street if you get the street version. track ones are pretty stiff.

I defected to an evo :)
Evo is gone :(
Now I got nothing.

Not trying to be an a$$, but search around, someone had some info up about different struts/shocks to use. Many people say the KYBs are nice to go with.

I am running the KYB AGX struts on my car with Tein S-Techs and they work great. The suspension work stiffened up the car a bit but its still very streetable. You might also want to look into getting Koni inserts. I have heard good things about them. The only down side(IMO) is that they are inserts so you have to cut apart the stock strut.

I'm running the KYB AGX's as well.Great performance at a great price.Plus they are adjustable dampners.The difference between a shock and a strut is generally a strut is intergrated into the suspension system and a shock is not.

"Struts and shocks are very similar in function, but very different in design. The job of both is to control excessive spring motion; however, struts are also a structural component of the suspension. Struts can take the place of two or three conventional suspension components and are often used as a pivot point for steering and to adjust the position of the wheels for alignment purposes. "
