Default How to source OE shocks/dampers for SportsPack facelift XJS?

My 1992 5-speed XJS has the SportsPack suspension. One of the rear shocks has recently piddled out its oil onto the floor, and the shock absorber squeaks something wicked at highway speeds. Has anyone got any tips about what replacement is suitable? I understand the original uprated Boge units are no longer available. I want to maintain originality to the greatest extent possible, though I would consider the standard Boge shocks that are available. If I must change the shock stiffness I would prefer to go a little softer than a little harder. I am planning to replace all six.

Thanks in advance for any ideas you have. Happy holidays!

You can aways try adjustable KONI shocks.
