E350 2011 estate..my rear suspension drops on the left when…

Customer Question
Second opinion] e350 2011...

Second opinion] e350 2011 estate..my rear suspension drops on the left when parked for hours but raises within seconds on start up..ihave taken to dealers twice but they say because it hasnt failed its still ok but it stills rises to normal ride height on start up.is this true?

Mechanic's Assistant: How has the ride been lately? Have you noticed any fluid under the car?

None

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your E350 yourself? What have you tried so far?

No,the dealers said because of the price to replace i may as well wait for failure complete. its prefect in the summer but cold weather it always drops

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No thats all
