air shocks on 1996 Lincoln Continental

my car is riding low and really bouncy! i have been told that there is a leak in the hose on the front passenger side. i dont have the money for a conversion kit to struts so, i just need to know what does "there is a leak in the hose mean" and what part should i replace to make my car lift back up and stop bouncing???

ifyou can find the leak - splice it or replace the line. i would check the front air strut for rot first tho - remove the front passenger tire and inspect the air strut for wear and dry rot.
