Rear suspension shocks need replacing- Strutmasters is the cheapest alternative?

My mechanic told me last week the rear Continuous Damping Control (CDC) shocks are leaking oil and need to be replaced on my 2014 Equus.

The odometer reads a little over 200,000 km (that's about 125,000 miles).

Unlike the struts for the front, both he and I can't find them anywhere on the used market.

They're about $2,500 new (roughly $2,000 USD). If I buy the Strutmasters conversion kit with the light module, it's $2,145 Canadian with shipping and duties (or about $1,700 USD) for the whole system.

I feel like this is what I should do. Is this what I should do? I just want to be sure before going through with it, so if you have any advice, please advise.

Strutmasters gets good reviews on this forum. But, you'll have to deal with the warning light on your dash.

This website sells the OEM rear shocks for your car at about $960 each plus shipping. I would just go with the OEM shocks for that price and hope they last another 125k miles. The Strut Master conversion may not ride as good as the stock adaptive shocks and they are only $300 cheaper.
