Welcome to the Frf and you need a front end alignment your camber adjustment is off slightly negative camber easy adjustment but depending on the situation may need the camber adjustment bolts with round washers rather than the factory square minimal adjusting washers.

I thought it could be a bent axle so I even changed that and it's still crooked.
