156 1.8 TS Sportwagon Rear suspension

The rear suspension is flat to the metal (or feels like it over potholes and humps in London!)
I've been quoted 436..each... for the correct replacements; told also that the wrong replacements will leave the backside too low..(I do live in Notting Hill but am not a drug dealer wanting cool tied down suspension and black windows. Verified part number as 60668186.
Any advice re source of reliable and cheaper parts? Thanks.
Re my 33, yes I have photos; will post later.

So are you being quoted for self-levelling suspension units? If so, no need for them - I've run several Sportwagons without, just using the correct rear springs and the right shock absorbers. (I've also run one on saloon rear suspension, but with a full load that did bottom out slightly if undulating loads were taken briskly)

Shop4parts ( Alfa Romeo 156 Mk1 (>2002) 2.0 16v Shock Absorbers ) show rear shockers for 52 - 53 each depending on Sports Kit or not, and rear springs for the Sportwagon for around 26 each....all prices plus VAT and carriage I guess......
