Hello, my name is ***** ***** I'm here to help get your problem solved.

It sounds like your camber is off which means top of wheel would be further in from vehicle then bottom. There is no adjustment for this, it would mean you have a worn suspension component such as shocks or control arm bushings. Considering it is happening on both sides I think you most likely need new shocks. I'd start by checking for any play in suspension components and if good replace the shocks. Let me know if you have questions, thanks.
