r129 bootlid/trunk gas struts

Hi, I am looking to replace or re-gass the bootlid struts given the lid 'just' manages to stay up when open now. I priced originals from barlow world but got nose bled at $115 each. I have found same on the autohauz.com web sit in the USA where they are $30 each but the shipping is $55 , just too much. So, any recommendations welcome with respect to anyones experience at how long they last if regassed or alternate source. I'm in Melbourne, Vic
