After last years big servicing bills and HGF this year appears to be suspension! My rear suspension ride height is about half that of the front end. I have taken to leaving some quite heavy gear in the boot for a couple of months and the car is often left parked facing up a gradient for a week or so at a time. Now either there is a problem or the simple fact is the weight and parking angle have unbalanced the hydragas. Is that a reasonable explanation or am I looking at new hydrogas units? Presumably I could equalise them out by unloading the weight, going for a drive and parking on level ground?

Appreciate any advice.

I think you just need a pump up.

All the weight (the engine) is on the rear hydragas units. So when they get low, they get the opposite problems to Metros (which go high at the back and low at the front)

A pump up costs between £15 and £30. So should be a cheap fix.
