It's identical except for lighter springs and the hydraulic struts with accumulators rather than simple shocks. Links are the same, same part #.

I'm going to try to get the thrust arm in the 300D this weekend, will check the torque links while I'm there. I have a severe "torque steer" on acceleration, accompanied by a thump when changing throttle. I know the thrust link is bad since the bolt isn't centered in the bushing, but I didn't look very closely at the torque link.

Wander and sensitivity to cross-winds is also caused by improper front toe-in -- also true on the 300D as one tire is wearing on the outside.
