The biker doing the welding obviously didn't know much if his conclusion was as you say. But, you need specifics, because you definitely have a problem. 'Collapsed shocks' don't happen, because they do not support weight, and unless you have struts, they do not determine any part of suspension geometry. Your steering gear is not rack-and-pinion, and problems that could develop with a steering box would not cause this symptom. Collapsed front suspension bushings, subframe mounts, or rear suspension parts could do it, among others. Take it to a Benz tech if you don't think you can find it.
