Yours is an early 911 correct? Regardless, you have the earlier 1 piece spring plates, you need to remove the camber and toe bolts (green arrows). You'll also want to be sure the suspension/ torsion fully unloaded or you'll chew up the threads on the bolts...

Remove the shock, fully extend the trailing arm, and let the spring come to rest (most likely on one of the spacers where the yellow bolts mount. Mark the angle of the spring plate on the inner wheel well with a pencil or something similar. You should be able to wiggle off the spring plate at this point. Doesn't have to be super exact, but get it close. When you rotate splines the new angle is much different that you'll notice.

As for the bushing, you'll probably see that it's pretty worn and all squished to one side, they are bonded to the trailing arm while new ones are not, so there are some arguments as to what is the better program. Regardless, if they are original the replacements will be better than what you have, you will see when you look at them.
