Help with replacement of struts

Hello, I have a problem with my 1995 BMW 325i. I think the struts are blown as any bump makes me bounce up and down pretty bad and speed bumps are a pain cause I have to go slow over it or I hit something under the car. I'm meaning to replace the struts but I don't know whether mine are sport or regular and all these options are over my head so I was wondering if you experts could help :P.

I don't race or anything it's just a driving car so I'm not looking for performance just something that will stop the bouncing. I found some relatively cheap deals on some strut assemblies from car-stuff.com. I was planning on getting these:

Strut Assembly
1993 - 1995
BMW 325i Monroe Strut Assembly
325i
Monroe
Part #: TS71524

That's for the driver side and the part # for passenger side is: TS71523. The total for both with shipping/handling and with a coupon is about $162. Again, I don't know if these are the right kind but based on looking around on car sites they look the same but then again I don't know what kind of suspension my car has. Hopefully someone can help.

Thanks!

IDK if it will still be there, but under the rear seat there might be a build sheet with the suspension specs and all the cars options.

Nope, it's not there. Would calling a BMW dealer to look up the car work?
