I recently bought a used 2007 Honda Accord EX-L V6 and I think I need to change the struts. I have been looking around online for struts and there are so many different brands.

I nailed it down to Monroe brand and here is the one that I'll be buying:

I also found Gabriel G57056 ReadyMount Complete Strut Assembly for $82.

Can I use Monroe for the front struts and Gabriel for the rear struts? Should I stick with the same brand?

Yes, you can use different brands on the front and rear. Some high performance vehicles do this to get specific handling needed. In your case, it may not be a choice for performance, but it should be acceptable.

It would not be a good idea to alternate brands side-to-side.
