w124 ,,,, What is this thing??

Probably a silly question but here goes,,,

What is this thing at the top of the driver's-side strut on my 1993 300CE? Looks adjustable whatever it is. My 1989 260E doesn't have one.





Thanks!

AS stated that is a vibration damper...there are 3 more of them on the car.

LEAD weight to counter "cowl shake" that plagues many convertibles.
