Last time I saw, they were on back order from Porsche, I might be wrong.

Send an e-mail off to [email protected] and he will know for sure.

Are ya sure that lower rod has both ends nice and tight?

I've gotten weird motion out of the rear when the nuts backed off. That lets the conical washers get loose which allows a lot of motion.

Lower rod bolts are key to the whole rear system ... put 104 ft lbs on them and then see if anything moves. I replaced shocks a couple months ago and once the rod assembly is loosened everything will move around just like in this video.

Are you sure the cone washers are installed correctly? If the cones are not installed on both sides of the upright with the cones pointed towards each other you will also get similar movement. Watch the lower pin. When you rock the upright. If the pin doesn't move in conjunction with the upright it is not the bushings but that the cones are not transfering the load to the pin as intended. From watching the vid the pin looks stationary so not a bushing issue. I would guess low torque or incorrectly installed washers.
