Need help with suspension problems

Hi guys, i have a 1997 VTI-R ATTS (Australian model, same as type SH). My wheels on the right hand side (both front and rear) poke out more than the left side. The width and offset is same on each side. The right side pokes around 10-15mm more than the left side.
Also, my rear left wheel has +0.2 camber whereas the rest of them have -3.0. Could that be subframe damage?
The previous owner told me that the car hasnt been in an accident before but i think it has, considering all these issues. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.
Here are some pics for the same.

Re: Need help with suspension problems

have you had the alignment looked at lately? Might look into that, also might climb underneath and take a look at what is going on behind the wheel not sure if it is likely but have seen vehicles where the rotors were pushed out and barely holding on. Just a thought.
