It is obvious, by just looking at the profile of the vehicle, the vertical alignment of the rear tires are obvious out of alignment. How do I adjust the vertical alignment? Looking at the suspension system on the rear wheels, the rubber bushing are cracked, need to be replaced, but there is not an obvious method to adjust the vertical alignment on the rear wheels. What is the best way to make this correction? The inside of the rear tires are smooth.

It needs to be done on an alignment machine. There are ecentrics that are adjustable. However, if it is bad enough, it could need shimmed.

That is known as camber and for this vehicle, they are not adjustable. The cracked bushings should be replaced as they would cause the camber to go out of specs.
