When I turn the car off the tail goes down, sometimes it gets lower than before. Then when you start the car it jerks as it pumps itself back to normal height from the ground. I reached out to the dealer and the guy explained that he has heard of this and it's due to the fluid in the air bags that sits on top of the compressor; it's really weird. But the fluid is leaking inside the air bag even though you do not see it leaking. He called it wear and tear and it costs about $1,500 to repair. Yikes.
Rear End sags when the vehicle is shut off. Reinflates once vehicle is started. Is this an indication of a bigger issue.

Car goes low to the ground when stopped. Used to raise up when ignition started but no longer goes up.
I have a problem with my rear sagging on my truck. What could this be? Do I need new springs?
