Front end on recently acquired 81 300D sags/droops slightly. Any reasoanble fix for this other than spring replacement? TIA

Springs are the answer! shocks only dampen the ride.
When ever the ride height is the question then springs are the answer.

Why not try the spring pads, they come in 4 thicknesses, much cheaper, maybe raise the front a bit and lower the rear a bit. Just a thought.
