    This type of faucet is called a single lever, and they been around for years. I understand it is dripping but it is very hard to explain how to repair it without seeing the faucet. Common one's are Delta, Moen, American Standard. All have different repair replacements. Some easy and some difficult. If your not sure call a Pro!

Take it apart and take the parts to the plumbing supply and match them up. If you cannot live with the drip would you not replace it anyway if you cannot repair it?

indicates that you have ceramic 1/4 or 1/2 turn inserts in the taps
These taps are very quick action taps and the water flowing is stopped immediately resulting in water hammer
The air chambers you have installed ( accumulators ) may be working but the pipes will suffer the water hammer all the way back to the utility tap on the foot path
Find out the utility pressure to the house and then you may have to install a pressure regulator on the inlet pipe to reduce that pressure to stop the water hammer
