suspension woes

2005 X5 with 122000 kms, and when I stop a little hard, experience a bit of rocking motion. Seems like the struts/shocks are worn? Or is there another issue. I do not have air suspension.

Just bought 4.4 X5 and the valve cover gaskets were leaking. Favourite shop fixed this but cost is steep given what has to be removed to get to this. I factored most of that into price paid. Watch...

When you say OEM you must mean BMW parts but were there after market struts/shocks that you investigated?

Thumbs down 2001X5 Air Suspension

Just purchased used 2001. 217K kms. Suspension works well for front and no air leaks known but if I take a dip in the road it tries to buck me off the seat. Has anyone else experienced this?
