2002 Mercedes Benz his a leak in the hydraulic line. I believe it in front of the radiator.
The car drop down and doesn't rise up
The car lowers when it gets cold, especially the left passenger side.

It was diagnosed as the Shocks, but those have been changed. Still not fixed yet.
Very expensive to fix
