sw rear suspension

my sw has a saggy bottom. which i know is the self levelling shocks. im looking into options and opinions to put it right ideally id like koni shocks and bilstein springs all round but i dont have that sort of budget. so im looking at shocks from a saloon. mines a veloce so do i need to find the rear shocks and springs from a saloon veloce? are used good used parts going to be ok or not worth it and go straight for new? should i do the front aswell? (seems ok) i also need new front lower wishbones.
ive seen that its a pig of a job to do, so tips and advice would be much appreciated though i might be going to a mechanic friend for assistance.
budget is as tight as possible with car insurance at the end of the month.
Many Thanks
