Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

I'm assuming that you have air suspension and the bouncing is when going over bumps. If it's bouncing excessively and you hear what sounds like air leaking then you almost certainly have a leak in the rear air suspension components. It could be a damaged line or one of the shocks themselves may be leaking.

The first thing you'll want to do is a visual inspection of the rear shocks and lines looking for damage. If you don't see any visible issues then while the compressor is running you can use a solution of soapy water in a spray bottle to spray the component and look for bubbles which will show the source of the leak. If the leak is large enough that you can hear it then it shouldn't be hard to locate.
