I have Schnitzer springs and Bilstein sport shocks on my '96 1.9. I had them installed, along with the K-Mac front upper strut bushing/mount and rear bushing, by the mechanic who does all the work on my 911. He said that the rear bushing was rather difficult to press in, as it is polyurethane, and is much stiffer than the stock material.
The camber correction mounts are a must if you are driving your car mostly on city streets and highways, not on the track. When the new suspension peices where first installed the camber was -3.3 on right rear and -2.9 on left rear. I currently gave it set at -3/4.
By the way, if you haven't done it yet, the Racing Dynamics adjustable sway bars are great also!

: Has anyone installed the adjustable rear trailing arm bushings yet? How big a job is it -- doable at home? I have a Schnitzer suspension kit at at 13k miles the insides of the rear tires are down to the wear bars. If I sttand up one of my rear tires and give it a push, it goes around in a circle (in a horizontal plane).

: At least now I have an excuse to go tire (and wheel) shopping.
