Something badly bent, rear left.

So I've just taken my other halves 06 mini cooper convertible to have its wheel alignment checked as its been munching through rear tyres, specifically the edge, and the rear left was so far out they couldn't do anything.

Hopefully the picture of the readout has uploaded, but if not, the readings show as 2*13 camber and 2*11 toe, in other words the rear left is angled in due to hitting something.

Obviously I need to take it apart, or take it to a garage, but any ideas what is likely to be bent to cause it to be so far out of alignment?

Thank you all in advance.

Hi ya

I would first pull out and check your camber arm make shore there straight and the bushes are ok . They are very weak and suffer from corrosion.
Have a look around the subframe where they mount.
Also have a good look at the trailing arm bushes to they do wear

Has the car been lowered at all

Item 9 and 7 are what you need to check first
