Dinan sells suspension 'kits' (stage I through stage III) for this
purpose. A few years ago I replaced the front and self-leveling rear
suspension on my '91 M5 (stage I) for somewhere around US$1,700.00
plus labor. Work was done by Bavarian Professionals in Berkeley, CA.

You can swap in the standard oem parts (springs & shocks) and cap off all
the hydraulics for about the same price as replacing one hydraulic shock.
Then you've got a matched, refreshed suspension that's more easily serviced
At least that's what we did several times on E32's with that issue.
Apparently its my rear accumulators that are bad and the local BMW shop
wants $600 to repair it including labor. He also quoted me about $800 to
redo the "entire" front end. My question is how hard is it to replace the
rear accumulators? Is this something I can attempt leave to a shop? I would
say I am an average backyard mechanic. Thanks!
