Post Confused 2006 500 ML owner

I purchased in 2007 a 500 ML with 14K Miles. love the car but now that I have 82K miles my Right front air shock will drop at times. At times she is fine and then "ooops" she goes down. At times there is no problem for several days. And there are times that when I park her and 5 min later she is down again. I understand that there can be a leak. But why is this not happening all the time if there is a "leak"? What makes it go intermitten. Is this issue related to the copressor? The MB shop and other shops tell me that it is a $1400 repair job. Is that per schock? Did MB resolve that problem with their newer models? I guess that I havemany questions here but I hope that I can get some advice. The car is great but I understand that many models had this issue.
