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.

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?

something like coil overs right?
on January 18, 2011
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.

wow is that what you did?
on January 18, 2011
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,

yeah it sounds alot better to go for that.. but what about the air ride system.. is the ride the same.. i bet it has to be rough?
on January 18, 2011
no its actually no difference at all to be honest with ya. its kinda even better :) i think you should check them out. .bet you wouldn't be sorry with the results.. i toke a big chance on it and so does alot of people im told. Great product.. highly recommended.

okay i also see they sell air products too. i might consider those too.
on January 18, 2011
yes they do.. the difference with that is. the conversion kit has a lifetime warranty verses air products dont have warranty.. so yeah.

ooh wow well Cammie thanks for your time!!

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.
