W126 anti-squat geometry?

The CD manual describes has wheel alignment specs for cars with and without anti-squat geometry. It also has specs for cars with and without pneumatic rear suspension. I know about the pneumatic suspension and I know my 91 300SE doesn't have it, but what is anit-squat geometry and how do I know if I have it? I remember reading about anti-squat geometry in the literature of a W109. I don't know how it applies to a W126. Is it a W116ism that found its way into the CD manual.

Thanks,
Sixto

Anti-Squat helps keep the car level under acceleration, while Anti-Dive helps keep the car level when braking. Not sure how this plays a role in your alignment adjustments though?

Thanks, David, I suspected as much. The alignment specs are different but I found no guidance on how to identify which suspension system is on a car.
