Caster bushings bad or bent control arm. Hell even other control arm bushings. Rear camber. Is the car lowered?

So you are saying bent control arm for the front? And why would be so much negative camber for the passenger tire?

I can't open up the thumbnail to see but you probably have a bent control arm. The negative camber on the front could be from the cam bolts on the frame being seized and the mechanic didn't say anything about it. The cam bolts affect the camber and castor.

I'd get new No. 2 control arm bushings from Figs: IS300 ADJUSTABLE Caster Arm #2 Press-in Polyurethane Bushings

Your bushing on the RF is probably gone. You can check how badly the rubber is cracked by jacking up the front of the car. FYI, this topic has been discussed to death on this forum.
