I have a problem with my 1990 750il in that the car rode stiff and would bounce when I would hit a bump. I though the shocks were bad. I found out the fix is to replace the rear accumulators. I changed these out and also have to replace the hoses due to not being able to remove them from the accumulator due to rust. I had a hard time getting hoses because there the hoses are for a right and left hose. There is very little difference between each hose and in a pinch you could bend it to make it work for each side, but better to get the correct hose. Well after the accumulator were replaced the car rode great. Since I never rode in a 750il prior to my car I did not know how is was supposed to ride. I was told the rear struts which look like shocks don't need to be changed but if you don't correct the accumulator problem that can lead to damaging the rear struts. Now riding great in Florida
