    i had this on my silver W124. One side spring had sagged.

    Replace springs on both sides of the car. Now the car sits properly.

    Get it checked ASAP and try not to drive it to far, it's possible the the spring cup has come away from the body (very dangerous)

    Problem solved, lower arm had cracked, just by the ball joint.
    New arm fitted and back to proper ride height.

    That could have been nasty.
