Sometimes overnight it will go down. And when driving sometimes it will go down, or it will stay up for a day or it stays up for days or weeks. In the front air ride.

If both sides are going down I would look for an air leak first. Then test the level sensors and look at the connectors for corrosion or damage. If nothing found use a diagnostic machine to hook to the EVO/air ride test port and test the individual components in the system.
Or remove the air ride in favor of a conventional suspension conversion.

There could be leakage internally through a bad solenoid that you will not see or hear. However, the sensors are prone to failure and becoming disconnected so I would start there. The other option would be to find a dealer/shop that has the diagnostic tool that fits that suspension system and see if it shows and codes stored in the suspension control module. Might cost more but it could make fixing it a lot faster and easier overall.
