The car has an airmatic suspension system. Usually the problem is in one of the rear air bags is leaking. Some of the AMG cars might have an air strut instead of a bag. The car will have to be scanned with a MB capable scanner to find the exact problem. Don"t attempt to drive it as you will cause damage to the drive line.
