The stock showa tubes are fine, nothing really wrong with them. Öhlins has two solutions which I've tested and work great. The UES kit and cartridge kit. Neither one is very expensive and getting 25mm cartridges is fine and you'll save a shitload of time.

Most of the other options are junk because they require further tuning, where the Öhlins kits are already setup when you receive them. So all the installer needs to do is physically bolt the kit together and add oil. I vastly prefer the cartridge kit over the valving because it works better. The cartridge kits also come with springs, so that's one more thing you don't need to deal with.

Don't forget, the shock plays a HUGE role in this as well, so if you're doing the front, you absolutely need to do the rear as well and the stock shock isn't worth modifying. So budget for a DU301 (if you can find one used) because that's the best option for that bike. Have someone re-build it and throw the right spring on it for you.
