My Envoy has a dragging tail. The compressor seems to run but the rear of the vehicle sits down on the stops. Looks like a low rider including the back breaking bouncing ride. An auto repair shop (reputible one) looked at it when it first started to leak down and could not find the problem. Where should I start? Thanks for your help!!

The tailgate assembly requires regular lubrication and adjustment in order to keep functioning properly. If it has stopped functioning, follow the manufacturer's recommendations for periodic lubrication and adjustment.
There has been a service bulletin for that type of concern. Here is what it states.

Some customers may comment on the rear suspension being uneven or sagging.
DO NOT REPLACE THE COMPRESSOR.
Based on technician feedback, engineering has determined that the customer's concern can be corrected by recalibrating the air spring sensor. Refer to the Trim Height Uneven or Low diagnostics and Air Spring Sensor Calibration procedure found in SI.
The air bags should be strong and not leaking themselves. It may be a valve on the bags or the plastic line going to the back that is leaking.
Some soapy water sprayed on the air ride items may show bubbles from where its leaking. Like checking a tire for leaks.
is it possible you have the air shock style suspention you can tell by the large rubber boot on the shock if so one could have a leak and your hearing the on board compressor running constantly 220/min seems mechanical hope this helps
The tools are under the second row seats. The hole for the spare tire lowering mech. is above the rear bumper when you lift the tail gate. Put the proper tool down the hole, turn counter clockwise, lowers spare. Reverse to bring up.
