Post S430 Leveling System

I have an S430 and I am having problems with the leveling system. I hear a noise before and after each start that sounds like a grind or the leveling system going up and down. It is now giving me a warning in Red saying "car is too low. stop car and do not drive!" This happens when I drive it a long way and all of a sudden the front of the car is sitting nearly on the ground. The scariest part is when I have to do something to the wheels, the car will fall all the way down to the ground and I have to press the button on top of the dash to raise it back up to normal. Is this normal? I was told by a mechanic that one of my shocks was leaking and that this is common with my model. Are there any fixes around for this problem or will I have to take it to the dealer and spend my life savings to repair it? ?If the shocks have to be replaced, can I just buy new shocks and have them installed?
