I would suggest replacing all of the dampers as PM. Time takes their toll on them. FCPEuro sells them as a set with a lifetime guarantee. Also, closely inspect any hydraulic line you can get to. If you detect ANY sort of leak or weeping, replace or repair it while you have access.
Before putting it all back together, get the area as clean as you can to make it easier to detect any leaks in the future. Grime absorbs fluid and makes it very difficult to detect leaks.
Maybe replace the crank position sensor (FCPEuro again) and keep the one you remove as a spare in the car should you get stranded. Very cheap insurance.
