Not Volvo maindealer though as already have a mortgage,
Volvo don't manufacture shocks. If you go to the main dealer, they'll sell you Sachs shocks in a Volvo box and charge you more because its in Volvo packaging. The Sachs shocks you buy aftermarket are identical to the ones the main dealer sell.

As simboc said above, Sachs or Bilstein are good brands to go for.

Just be aware that if your car is an R design spec, it'll have nivomat rear shocks. These aren't the same as standard shocks. Nivomat's are very expensive, roughly £500 each.
