Its sounds like the air suspension has collapsed in the right front corner. You're headed to the nearest MB dealer for repairs on that one.
For whatver reason, the air-strut or the air supply to that strut has failed causing the right front to sit low.
Reading extensively b/c I have the same issue I found that the airbags attached to the front shocks can fail causing loss of air and essentially no suspension. Replacement of the front shock assembly is the fix. I have priced them online between $400 and $600 for re-manufactured units.
I have heard there is a repair kit for the from strut seals. Has anyone heard about this. It is a much cheaper fix. I was quoted $1000 be my dealer for parts and labor. They said the strut was bad. Mine will go up and stay up but in the morning it is down. Sometime it responds to the raise level button and sometimes not. I also once got an error message that read "pump cooling".
