The 96+ E class W210 has rack and pinion steering, I think that was the first MB to have RP ( I'm not counting Smart cars or "never made it to the USA". ) See pic of 190 with a W210 rack, pic was from LS1TECH web site.

Most ( all ? ) front drive cars are RP so you have a wide range of non MB to choose from as well. Getting the proper end to end length and inner tie rod height and F/R location will take some work to reduce bump steer.

For some reason , MB used a remote mount gas pedal pot driven by a cable on 97 and up drive by wire cars rather than a pedal mounted pot. You might be able to fab the new pot to the old linkage using a similar arrangement.
