The only reasons that I could come up with are the stut to knuckle attaching bolts are loose or have been loosened maybe alignment that wasn't done correctly or new stuts that they didn't bother with an alignment. Could also be the struts themselves are frozen. To check and see if in fact they are frozen, bounce the rear of the vehicle and see if it bounces a few times SOFTLY or do they bounce with little travel, very stiff like. Hope that this helps. Best wishes.

What does it mean when your front wheels are not parallel? Driver side points straight forward and the front left points a little to the right.

It means that your front end is out of alignment. The front wheels should be adjusted so that both point slightly inwards at the front of the car when the steering wheel is straight. This is referred to as "toe-in." The reason why cars and trucks are aligned with toe-in is because the wheels go to a straight position when traveling on a highway due to the road resistance pushing the tires back. What you have is a "toe-out" condition which will cause the tires to wear faster at the side adjacent to the back of the wheels. Have your car aligned to avoid such uneven wear.

What is the problem when the rear tires on a 96 dodge avenger are slanted inward

Inward at the top?? Need's rear struts. Jack up one side, grab the tire, try to wiggle in a back & forth motion. If it is solid then it's not the wheel bearings.

I have trouble steering...the truck wanders over the road...i have replaced idler arms, pitman arm, center link, shocks, brakes, new tires, front end alignment, bearings...the right front tire sits...

when the steering wheel is centred, the front wheels should both point slightly inwards.
after the amount of parts changed, i would recommend that you get the tracking checked at a garage using the proper, calibrated measuring systems, to make sure that the steering is set up properly and safely.

Car has about 60,000 miles recently has had new tires just doesn't ride like it did when it was newer steering wheel also seems to have a slight vibration.

The tread pattern of the new tires can make it ride worse then the previous tires and if you have a vibiration it is very possible that a tire was not balanced properly or is out of round.

Rear wheel tilt 1976

Wow you have picked my brain from 1989 when I was in the body shop business. I used to fix fiberglass vehicles and most were corvettes. The older guy I used to work for showed me how to set the rear suspension up and we would jack the back of the car up and turn a cam and nut on a trac bar. The tire would be tilted at about 3 degrees inward (bottom of tire). You then would lower the car and the tire would set almost straight... I mean .... (ever so slight tilt). It has independent suspension as you well know and if you have checked the u-joints this is the next try. Worst case, a good alignment shop can fix your woes.
