Sudden Collapse of my Front End Alignment--Why? 83 240D

http://mywebpages.comcast.net/snow7ice/BENZ.html


My 83 240D has tracked straight and true for years. Now, suddenly, the steering wheel needs to be cocked 30 degrees askance to make it go straight.
When I was getting some exhaust welding done , a Meineke mechanic noted that the front end was messed up and "I might as well throw the car away".
I know there isnt much to aligning the front end. Its either the tie rod links. The front end variables are:
1.Steering Rack,
2.Ball joints,
3.Bent tie rods (n/a),
4. Collapsed Shocks and that is it...

Can anyone clue me as to what is going on?
