Look on the inside of the tires, the struts are the coil springs with the shock absorber inside. You should have two on the front and two on the back. You should have someone put them on that knows what they are doing. It can be dangerous and someone could get hurt if you aren't careful.

SOURCE: how will I know if

You can test them by pushing down at each corner of the vehicle, like trying to bounce it.
When you let it up do so quickly and it should spring back and stay still.
If it bounces once or twice then the shocks need looking at or testing.

figure out what year and model you have. call a parts store and buy some quik-struts for your car. if the mounts are bad, so are the struts. quik-struts have a new spring and mount and are already assembled. that is your only real choice, all car parts go bad with age and use. the labor to remove the struts, disassemble them and replace the mounts then reinstall them is more than the cost of quik-struts.

If the air ride is working, then it is one of the shock sensors is unpluged or the airpump is fixing to go out, I would check all 4 shocks or strutts and check the plugins and if that dont help i would diable the airride and change it over to spring over strutt style. You will have to have a shop to this cause it is a big job, but in the long run your ride is better and you dont have to worry about it anymore.

Does it have strutts or shocks

Most likely you have struts on the front and air bags on the back.
To fix a sagging rear end, it will cost more than the value of the car.
There is a Canadian company named strutmasters, google it, which sells kits to convert self leveling air bag suspensions to real ones with shocks and springs.

Instructions on how to change out shocks and strutts.

First you will need to jack up the car to relieve the tension on shock, then remove the two bolts one located at bottom of strutt and the other will be at the top. Replace the new strutt by lowering the car down till the strutt slides on to the original locations.
