    Hi all,

    My 2005 W220 has airmatic suspension, which whilst driving works just fine in all settings comfort, sport 1 and sport 2 (no malfunction messages on dash)
    The problem I am having is that when I park the car up I notice the r/o/s lowers by about 2-3" where as the r/n/s only lowers about half an inch.
    It happens more often than not, however sometimes I can leave the car for a few hours and neither side has dropped noticeably.

    Any ideas on what it might be ?

    The car will level itself out on uneven ground, You sure its Airmatic and not ABC? suspension, Not that i think that makes any difference.

    It may well be the ride height sensors on the front wheel struts,you need to get it on a star it may not be the actual struts leaking but a sensor playing up.
