It sounds like there is a problem with the rear air bags. the air bags are there to help give you a softer ride.
3 spots i would check are the air bags themselves, the air pump located under the hood, or a proprtioning valve

How to replace rear air shock on 1992 buick parkavenue

Pretty sure your car has struts on the rear and the shock function is part of the strut. Replacing struts is more difficult than replacing shocks and they should be replaced in pairs.

What's the cheapest way to fix rear Air shocks

Well you have electronic controlled suspension which uses air shocks among other components.
The shocks are unique to Cadillac and your model fits various cars from 1998 until 2005.
You can buy replacement parts new, or used. I'm not aware of anyone who makes the shocks in standard form due to the electronic control feature.

What is dynaride?

Dynaride means that your rear shocks have electronic level control. There is a sensor mounted to the rear suspension. If you add some luggage or persons to the car the rear lowers. The sensor senses this down movement and starts the air compressor which is mounted in under the hood (left fender area). This compressor pumps air into the rear shocks compensating the additional load, so the car remains at proper level all the time. If you start the engine with a delay of about 20 secs the compressor should run for a view seconds to build up the minimal pressure the system needs. If the engine is stopped also with some delay of 30 sec. the release valve opens to vent out all the air.

Mazda mpv 96 problems with the leveler

Expensive to fix. There is a lever behind the spare tire which senses load and accordingly turns on the air compressor to pump up the rear shocks. The problem I've had is the one rear shock air line will develop a leak by rubbing against the shock cover which causes the system to continually bleed down. These shocks are about $400.00each to replace new.

Compresser runs battery dead

There may be two compressors. One for the air conditioning that runs off a belt bolted onto the engine. No, you don't need it if your windows will go down this summer. As long as it turns, it doesn't have to compress. (You can have other things wrong with air conditioning also). If there's absolutely nothing else being driven by that belt, the belt could even be removed if the compressor is frozen. That would save a little gas if that can be done. There might be another compressor, a little thing mounted on the drivers side inner fender well on some cars. It's for the rear shocks if the car has that kind. If the car still rides and handles ok, you can live without that guy too. Sometimes you replace the shocks with regular ones.
