Hello folks, I just joined this great forum hoping to get some advice for my '08 E92 AWD. I've had it for nearly 8 years with pretty much no serious issues until the other day when something eventually broke, and to my limited knowledge, it's the strut...I took couple of pics to show how it looks now, the car runs and turns normal but going over even the smallest pot hole produces a very noticeable noise, like hitting a wooden spoon inside an empty jar :)

So I called the local indie-shop and was quoted something like $1.5K to replace both struts, which to my knowledge is the ongoing price but looking at the strut, it seems to me that just the rubber is torn, does that warrant replacing absolutely everything on both sides? I'm supposed to drop off the car at the shop on tuesday so they can look at it, but just wanted to get some clues as to what really needs to be done .
Thank you.
