F10 138k miles, rear suspension

Hi all

I have a 2013/LCI f10 520d SE which has just rolled over 138k miles, I've owned it since 33k and the last 105k have been 90% motorway

I think my rear driver side shock absorber has seen better days and I'm looking to replace both of the rears

Should I be changing the springs too? There is no corrosion on the springs at all

Otherwise, am I looking at 2x top mounts, 2x shocks, 2x sets of bump stops and sleeves, 2x sets of upper and lower spring seats and new bolts.

I'm looking at Sachs shock absorbers unless there's better options out there?

I like the 'barge' like feel of my car and just want it to be comfortable more than anything

Currently sat on 225/55/17 non rft Goodyear tyres

Many thanks
Appreciate 0
