Replacement Dampers?

My local (very good) indie, just told me that the off-side rear damper is failing, so am looking into getting at least the rears changed.

I was thinking about doing all of them, as the RRS has done nearly 150K miles, and the ride is quite "crashy" now. Should I just replace the dampers, or replace the air springs as well?
(The air springs don't appear to be leaking, as I can leave it all week, and it doesn't drop noticeable.)

OK, thanks.

Was thinking that it would be the best choice to do the lot. It's just the £300 (inc VAT) for each one, even before fitting, that's making me wince a little. Rolling Eyes

Ah, yes, thanks!
Didn't read the cost on the advanced website properly. I was taking the VAT inclusive figure, and then adding VAT, to give me the £300 each figure. Embarassed That makes a nice difference, as if I do it' I'd rather do all of them at once, otherwise it's be a bit like a footballer just getting a new boot on one foot! Thumbs Up

A few spanners and how large a swear jar do you need? Mr. Green 2010 RRS TDV8, 2006 BMW 650i, 2007 Mini Cooper S
The TDV8 "replaced" a 2014 Ford Ranger .. I still miss the Ranger.
