I had the same problem with my '02 Envoy 4x4; had the soap test done and there were no leaks; also had the air compressor motor checked and mechanics said it was fine. The rear air bags were worn and cracked so I had them replaced. It lifted and rode at the correct ride height for a few weeks.
After having the rear air bags replaced I noticed that it was starting to not lift as before. Had another diagnostic check; the air compressor was not forcing air through the system in order to lift the vehicle. The air compressor motor was replaced. Compressor comes on and shuts off now.
Vehicle is at the normal ride height now.
Rear air bags and air compressor motor were dealership parts; unable to find after market; not recommended to replace with used parts.
I had the dealership to run the diagnostics and had another mechanic to replace the parts. Total repair for bags, motor + labor = $1500

After sitting in the garage the rear end drops low. After driving the vehicle again the rear end raises back up again.

Sounds like you have air ride and your system has developed a leak. I suggest getting it fixed soon. You will burn up your compressor and that can get expensive.

Envoy air ride compressor

The load leveler sensor operates the compressor. It most likely is malfunctioning. It is located on the rear drivers side lower control arm.

I have a 02 envoy which the rear keeps deflating. When I turn it on the compressor kicks on and airs it up, but sometimes while driving it will start to lower and the compressor doesn't turn on. If i...

There must be a leak. That is obvious. And when the air gets low, the truck is supposed to fill it back up no matter if you are driving or parked. There must be something that reads the pressure in the system or how high the back end is. Some sort of switch must tell it when its full or high enough. That switch may be broken and not reading the low side of the pressure. I have a lincoln towncar, it was one of the first cars with air ride. Ive since had them replaced with normal springs. Rides just as good and only cost me 170. No worries from here on out. If you end up having a hefty bill to fix that air ride, maybe think about eliminating the problem with springs.

Is it possible to lower the rear ride height on an 03 envoy xl by moving the air ride accuators?

If you can lower the actuators without damaging them, it should work. The ride height should drop the same amount that the actuators are lowered. Don't go too low or you will bottom out the air shocks.

What should i expect to pay to replace the rear struts? my envoy drops in the rear making mommy's car look like a low rider. it comes up once i turn on engine, but it's slow to do so.

You car has air ride suspension. The problem may or may not be the air springs, there are no "struts", have a shop check them for leaks.

Rear climate control

check and see if your rear control is working for the radio, if not: that could be your problem. All of the power for the rear of the envoy is controlled by this module.
