The '84 300D cars do not have front struts. The shocks are separate.
Some questions for you:
-How many miles on the car?
-Does the rear sit lower than the front, unloaded?
-Depending on miles you may want to check the front suspension for:
-Front wheel bearing adjustment
-bad tie-rod ends
-leaking shocks: a lot of oil down the sides.
-Idler arm bushings
-The steering shock (it could simply be this)
Hope this helps
