Ricky Bobby will become famous soon enough
sometimes a slow leak you won't hear.

if its deflating after being parked over night you have a leak. On your '04 the bags are almost 10 years old. I would visually check for leaks but would replace sooner rather than later, Arnott Industries is where we all get our bags from when needing to replace. The fronts are 369 after core exchange. Do both.

Most likely to be the bags. Had mine mine replaced and problem was gone.

Agree with above and did the same as above. Spray soapy water or window cleaner on the bags and look for bubbles. If you see them go the Arnott route and if funds permit IMO replace both sides so you have the same set up on each corner
