On vehicles equipped with rear air springs, the air compressor may fail causing the rear suspension to sit low.

    The rear end drops on the tires and if you start the car it will rise but then by the end of the day it drops (like a low rider cars)

    I have the same problem. The rear goes down from time to time. When riding down the road I can feel the back getting low. When it does, the ride is very bouncy and very uncomfortable. When I stop and turn off the engine for a few minutes the back rises up again and the ride is smooth sailing. The air compressor for the rear may go out for a few days or I may not have that problem again for a few days or even weeks. Its very frustrating!!!!
