Question Help!

I have a 1994 E34 525iX and would like some advice, please!

The rear of the car lists slightly to one side, which I assume means the rear shocks need replacing. I have had a look and they look like they're self-levelling, in which case why does it list? Is it a bump rubber or some other part that needs replacing?

Leading on from that, how hard is it to replace the self-levellers with ordinary shocks? I understand I'd have to remove all the pipework from the power-steering unit backwards, plug the pipes and bleed the power steering? Apart from time and effort, is this a major drama or can I do it myself?

Any advice would be well received.

Thanks in advance.

How many miles? It is possible that one spring is worn as well.
