Default New rear shocks in UK?

Took my car for the annual MOT test today and thankfully it passed ok.
But there were a couple of advisory items.
1, Front anti-roll bar ball joints worn (drop links)
2, Rear shocks leaking fluid and damping effect weak.

I have noticed a knocking from the rear and suspected the shocks were worn so I have been looking online for replacements.

Checked Lings Honda and they want 154 EACH!

The UK Branch of GAZ shocks doesn't seem to list parts for our cars, so I was wondering if anyone has found an alternative.
