300TD failed inspection - suspension advice

Just took my 82 300TD for NJ inspection and it failed the suslension test. Results stated "front suspension - excessive side to side variation. consider damper replacement" also "right wheel - passed, left wheel - check for broken or loose components. recommend damper replacement".

Anybody have some guidance on best way to identify and eliminate these problems?

thanks in advance!

I have rebuilt a couple really bad front ends. I would first try looking at the bushings. Yours are probly cracked and deteriated. I ran into a ball joint that had cracked. Just do a good inspection and you'll probly find the problem(s).
