Rear suspension???
Are both rear shockers controlled from only one side, The reason I ask is that it appears to me that only one side gets gassed up and the other side is lifted by the first?
I have a gl1200 interstate if that helps?

Yes both sides get the air from the same side. The hoses are split at a fitting, although I don’t think it’s a proportioning valve. I wonder if you have a bad spring or maybe just low on oil.

Just think, your suspension has 24 or so years on it, the rear has a shock and a spring, would your car shock last 24 years ?

It is probably tired.

Possibly needs a rebuild or replace.

I replaced my front springs with Progressive springs and my rear with Progressive Shocks.

Things don't last for ever unfortunately.

Maybe just a little TLC
The only stupid questions are the one's that are not asked.
