They don't have any balance. Its a metal rod with a ball and socket. If the ball and socket are worn they make noise. You always do brakes per axle you don't replace front and rear because one axle is worn. Shocks are a little different. If they have more than 30k on them BMW says replace both if not do the one that is leaking. That was warranty criteria. I would always replace both shocks on the axles that were an issue if it was customer pay. I work on BMW's and have for almost 40 years. I know what I am talking about. If you don't want to listen that is your call and money. Don't tell other to spend what they don't have to.
