Question Mercedes Benz 300TD Wagon 1987 Rear Shocks

My 1987 Mercedes Benz 300TD rear shocks need to be replaced. Do I need to replace the shocks with the same electric hydraulic shocks that came standard and are very expen$ive to replace or can I replace them with less expensive aftermarket mechanical shocks? My car was installed with the heavier duty shocks because it's a wagon and thus was built to to carry heavy loads in the big trunk.

Sorry we don't have any conversion kits, but we do carry Sachs rear shocks for the self-leveling 300TD: https://www.autohausaz.com/catalog/c...ber?s=d&page=1

Okay, I have follow up question then. I would need to purchase 2 of the shocks you linked to, correct? Because I would need to purchase 1 for the left rear and 1 for the right rear.
