190e Alignment

I have a 1991 190e 2.6L. The springs were replaced with the eibach sport springs which lower the car approx 1". The front had enough adjustment to bring it back into alignment. The rear is unadjustable, from my understanding, and required adjustable camber struts to get it back into alignment.

Recently I had a tire blow out in the rear due to severe wear on the inside the tire, which i am assuming is due to the change in toe. I plan on removing the adjustable camber strut and adding some bushings to the control arm. The shop that i talked to about aligning it after i do the work said they would have no problem doing it, they just need the specs. Does anyone have any idea what the specs should be after the adjustment of the ride height by 1"?

If anyone has the factory specs, i wouldn't mind taking a look at those as well.

There's a kit to lower this car, basically converts it to whats called a "Sportline." It includes a shorter differential frame, which changes the lower inside pivot point for the swing arms and affects the alignment.
