w126 sls shock rebuild?

Hi I just removed both rear sls shocks on my 85 500sel. Both were leaking. Got the car for a great deal and knew the sls would need work. Was wondering if anyone ever rebuilt there shocks of had a reputable shop do it. Or is my only option new shocks? I do want to keep the sls as the rest of the system looks good. If new shocks are only option anyone know where to get them? Can't find them on peach parts. Thanks

I just went to the site and read the discussion...the thread seemed to get side tracked on other suspension issues and never really did get an answer on a rebuild. Am I just in for buying completely new ones or does anyone Know of someone or a shop who has experience rebuilding these? Thanks
