I had this. part of the rear beam had rotted out close to the stub axle. the weakness caused it to gain excessive negative camber which looked cool but was not safe.

Could be bearing, or snapped beam. Jack it up and have a look.

Get under there and have a look, could be a few things, most of which will be obvious on inspection.

If you can't see corrosion, next thing to check would be bearings and the stub axle which is a bit more work but not to difficult to strip down.

If you cant find anything wrong or broken then it may be an allignment issue, quite often lowered or well laiden cars with rear beam suspension will be slightly out on rear wheel alignment due to the fixed length of the panhard rod that ties the beam to the shell to prevent lateral movement pushing the beam out to one side as the suspension is made lower, this can be rectified by shortening the length of the rod, rally design do a weld in adjuster that can be used on most cars with that setup
