because your accumulators are blown.
also known as "air cells" etc.
they are what enable the hydraulic piston in the struts to contract, since
liquids are not compressible, inside the cells a high pressure charge of
nitrogen in a bladder is placed in line with each strut. When the bladder is
compromised and the charge released into the system, it is purged out and
then becomes rock solid.
