They do not use shock dampers on the rear. They use struts and gas springs. If the gas springs go sitting in the back will feel like being pushed in a wheel barrow. Hard and bumpy.

It should stop after one up and down really. If it can't be pushed up and down or it is very low, the damper oil has probably leaked out.
