300E - Front End movement
Cruising at 60-65, car tracks straight, all seems fine. If I accelerate or de-accelerate slowly and smoothly, the car continues to track straight.
If I accelerate fast, the car seems to literally pick up it's front end and shift over a few inches to the right. It continues to track straight ahead. A very strange feeling.
If I remove my foot from the pedal after this rapid acceleration, the car seems to drop down and to the left, back to it's previous position.
While I know the car could use new struts, what else could cause this? When we inspected the car yesterday, we had it on the rack. I shook the front tires back and forth, etc. Didn't feel any movement. The rubber boots on the lower ball joints are starting to go.
Again I feel this only with a rapid acceleration.
