Searched but haven't seen this discussed.

After parking and exiting the vehicle, the rear end immediately releases one or two bursts of air and drops, causing the L and R sides of the rear end to "sag" simultaneously and equally to one another.

Happens most of the time but not always, even on level ground.

Front height always stays normal.

Rises upon start-up without any suspension error messages.

My concerns are unnecessary compressor wear and decrepit/unmaintained aesthetics.

Left it at LR mechanic who says no air strut issues, and has not detected a ride height sensor issue (yet).

Guidance please?

Hi,

Yes you can tell that it's uneven if you compare the front and rear wheel well gaps. It drops approximately 1 inch

Interesting to see that nobody has ideas on the cause.

my 07 does this as well, but I don't see it as an issue. I'd be interested to know if this is not in the norm as well.

My 07 does the same lowers 1" maybe 10 seconds after stut off !! I didn't understand and assumed it was just releasing excess air that was needed while driving for the bumps but at rest the airbags don't need that much pressure just to hold the vehicle up so it releases the pressure and extra strain on the bags ?
