Shocks/Struts '89 525i (archive)

I could use some opinions on my current situation. My '89 525i is bouncing all over the road, and I think it needs some shocks/struts. This is an old car, and I don't want to put a bunch of money into it, but I want to get the job done.

First question is parts-related: Does this thing take shocks or struts? Is there a difference?

Second question is service-related: Is there a retail chain sort of place where anyone would feel comfortable taking this car other than the dealer (Midas, etc) or are BMWs just too 'different' to be serviced via a traditional vendor?

Any idea what this type of thing would cost? Both parts and install.

Trying to get the Winter Bimmer ready for action. Any opinions or comments are appreciated!
