04 E320 Rear passenger ride height issue
I recently purchased a 2004 E320 wagon with 50k miles. Seems to be in excellent condition except that sporadically when I stop the car, the rear passenger wheel has very little clearance. This occurs maybe one of 10 times that I drive it. When it occurs, the rear passenger side will sit 2 inches lower than the driver side. I don't think it's a leak because it does not fall after sitting for a long time/overnight. It either stops down and stays down or 90% of the time stops at normal height and stays even if I don't drive it for a few days. When it is low, it always recovers within 1 drive (not sure how fast). I noticed it happening a few times after going over speed bumps then parking soon after but maybe jsut coincidence. My mechanic found a known issue with my model year and procuction month with a cable which he replaced but it did nothing. Has anyone had this issue?
