Sag on one side is probably not the accumulator -- bad accumulators give you progressively harder ride until they are completely flat, at which point only the tires have any "spring" to them. Unmistakeable.

Sag us either a bad spring or bad strut, and usually one bad strut causes the entire rear end to droop, I believe (I may be wrong).

These struts are not as expensive as the one's in the W123 chassis, but are somewhat more expensive than a shock.

Check the fluid level in the suspension reservoir, too, it could just be low.
