    Most likely you have a bad air bag spring. They can be replaced with a new one. They cannot be repaired. If they are not replace soon the compressor will go bad. Its located under the hood on drivers side usally.

    On top of rear axle housing. They hold the body up. They can be replaced with new air bags or you can buy a kit that changes car over to standard coil spring suspension and shocks.
