Default V50 rear shock absorbers - where to get?

Hello,

The rear shocks on my 06 v50 2.0d are worn and need replacing.

Can anyone recommend the best place to get genuine Volvo replacements? Ive looked but cant seem to find anywhere.

Or, should I just fit some cheaper 3rd party shocks? Any recommendations on what I could use?

Many thanks,
Sam.

I used KYB shocks from Euro Car Parts. Very reasonable and happy with the quality.

Thanks for the replies. Are they really about 75 quid each? Seems a lot.
