best shocks or bushes to soften the rear end on v6

These UK roads are too rough for hard suspension and anyway the rear bits are overdue to be replaced.

Well i guess there arent many options out there.. any experiences ? presume vauxhall bushes and shocks would be the softer ride option over all the aftermarket or cheap stuff ?

Better keeping it standard for a smoother drive mate.I put poly bushes
on the two of the callys and its quite a hard ride.
