I heard a high-pitched squeal from the front right - sounded like a puncture - that went on for several minutes. Then that side started to sink, so it looks like the air suspension is leaking (confirmed by on-board computer warning). Does anyone know the likelihood of this being the actual shock absorber as opposed to just an air line? May even be the pump I suppose.

My Benz sank in on the right front side. I drove to the garage and they quoted me like $800 to fix it. WOW!! Instead of putting all my money into the air, I bought a non air conversion kit from Strutmasters.com. I have to say I was and am impressed with this kit. It saved me so much money and time. Not to mention my car is riding again. And nice. :) Call them and let them know whats up with your car. They will help you!
