air suspension problem

I have a question about my 2002 S430. I am loosing air from the rear passenger side around the shock area. I took it to the dealer ship and they said the shock has to be replaced. I had a mechanic friend look at it and he said it is not coming directly from the shock but possibly a valve. It will hold air for about 20 seconds, lift the rear shock up then it leaks down.

Has anyone hear the same problem if so what was it? Or any suggestions will be helpfull.
