Hello, if your car is a rear wheel drive, you will want to have the upper control arm and the ball joint on that side of the car inspected for breakage or being badly bent. Something on that side has allowed the camber adjustment to get knocked off by about a country mile if the wheel leans so much you can see it visually. Normally this is caused by bolts on the upper control arm that break off and allow the shim pack that is used for adjusting the front wheel alignment to fall out. But back in those years they did also build a cutless that was a front wheel drive system in which case the problem will be related to the upper strut mounting in the front suspension. Which ever it is, the car is going to need to have the front end aligned once repairs are made and I would really caution against driving it until it has been fixed, just to avoid the possibility of having an accident or having the rest of the front suspension collapse on it while going down the road. Thanks
