The 300SDL doesn't have the self levelling rear suspension. When you put the car in gear it feels as if it goes up and down because the differential is attached to the body. Since you have your foot on the brake when you shift from park to reverse or drive, the power from the engine at the differential can't turn the wheel so it tries to turn the differential instead.
