problem #2

Around January 2016, the rear end was basically sitting almost on the rear tires--the air bags would not pump the rear end up. After a couple of days, it was fine. Then around March 2016, same thing happened. In June 2016, same thing happened but only down for about a day. The fourth time this happened was the other day, August 18, 2016--today is August 21, 2106 but they have not corrected. I have read over 100 threads of people having this issue and cannot understand why this problem has not been recalled--it seems to affect the Rainier and Envoy and trailblazers, among the ones I've read. Why shouldn't GM have to fix this issue? I understand there is a conversion you can do, but that will cost about $400+ to do that--right now we don't know if it's the bags or the pump, but the pump seems to work, just nothing happens. We noticed this when the vehicle was stationary, but it stayed the same in motion--very dangerous--the top of the body started scraping the wheel today while driving and it really has scared me.
