    The same thing happen to me, but my rear went completely out. I have an 03 Audi all wheel Quattro. You might want to take yours to the shop and check to see whats going on. pretty sure its the air suspension tho

    I ran mine into the shop while ago. it seems to be the whole air system has failed. and the price they quoted me was outrageous expensive.. idunno.

    yes the air suspension on a car is very expensive . You do have another option though Chad, have you ever heard of a conversion kit?

    yes they are coil over struts. which replaced the air system in the vehicle.. its a lifetime fix for the vehicle. no more air problems at all.

    yes i sure did. the kit i bought was from Strutmasters.com, The kit was 900 hundred and something dollars. and then toke it to a local shop . and paid a little more to get it fixed. but it beats 4 to 5 thousand to fix my Audi,

    yes they do.. the difference with that is. the conversion kit has a lifetime warranty verses air products dont have warranty.. so yeah.

    I can understand CammieO. We converted many Rovers to spring/strut system. They have 100x more problems than Audi-VW-Porsche and they are also very expensive to repair.

    The first thing should be: check the suspension (the entire system!) for air leak. This could be done by spraying soapy water to the suspension's component, including the lines, fittings, valve and air shocks. I'd suggest to find a reputable VW-Audi specialist who is familiar with the system and have a VAG-COM diagnostic computer.
