1995 S500 hydraulic struts

Hi, I just joined this forum because in reading some of the post, the information is actually really good.

I have a 95 S500. Mercedes told me that one of my rear struts is leaking hydraulic fluid. I learned on this site how to fill it, but to solve my problem, do i need to buy a new one? Or, can they be repaired since they are $600 each. Also, only me rear end is sunk down when out of fluid. Is that normal or should the front be dropped as well?

On anther note, what's the opinion on changing to a shock/spring system on the rear end?
