Check the oil level in the reservior -- if you are seriously low, the rear end can sag.

Otherwise, the usual reasons are a broken or disconnected level control valve (connects to the sway bar) or dead struts. The accumulators can go, too, but they give a seriously hard ride at normal height, not sag.

The level control pump can be bad, too.

There are several threads dealing with this subject.
