Could be many things not frame related. Could be a mod gone bad and the PCM isnít reading the rear end and front end. Theses cars have adjustable steering and adjustable rear gear ratios thru the computer. F that up and Iíve heard crabbing could be the result.
To bend a frame to get that youíre talking serious body damage. I didnít see any but only had one angle

Classic sign of a bend frame not straightened properly.

eh maybe. But you realize you canít even put a donut on the rear of these cars. You have to pull a front stock size wheel off the front if you get a rear flat, and put the donut up front.

Considering it's unibody it doesn't have a frame. That is a suspension problem. Left rear wheel is toe in (possibly camber also), right rear wheel is toe out (and also appears to be off on camber as well.) That car does not have four wheel steering so that indicates it has suspension damage. Best guess is a donut or powerslide gone wrong and hit a curb.

rear end is out of aline, the front is just turned to head down the road
4 wheel alinment would show what is wrong

Oh damn, you might be right what are they going to call it and will it include a new form of country rap?

I have a Challenger, would love to hear how I change the rear gear ratio through the computer. That isn't logical at all.

The car is damaged. It isn't anything with the computer.
