Problem Description and Possible Solution

Rear air springs (bellows) may develop leaks, which causes the air pump to run more often to maintain ride height. Our technicians recommend that leaking air springs be replaced.

After sitting for more than a few hours the left side rear drops dramatically. I was out of town and the sat for a week. When I started I received a dashboard warning message not safe to drive. After a couple minutes, the car rose to the normal ride height and the message went away. Can I continue to ride the car with this issue?
Waiting estimate
Bought this beautiful black 2007 E 350 u months ago with 106k miles. Had to replace all 4 springs and shocks ( spring were all cracked, and left rear shock was leaking oil). Dealer wanted $1400 just for two front springs. Had all 8 parts replaced, and another alignment for around $2300 at a local mechanic ( he drives a MB himself).
