The rear right wheels sticks out about half an inch more than the rear left. The car does not dog track on the freeway. The previous owner used the car for racing on the weekedns, dont know if that causes any issues like that?

Does anyone know how to fix that? do I get aftermarket control arms?

I cant see it in the pictures. You might want to check your rear bushings. Are they stock or aftermarket? Take a flash light and shine it inbetween the body and lower arm. There should be a metal sleave next to the bolt. Is it worn on the ends? A lot of hard launches might wear your mounts. That I can think of

First things first, make pull off the rear wheels and check the offset on each one. It will usually be stamped on the back of a spoke.
If it's not use a straight edge and a tape measure to make sure they are equal.

If they are the same check all the bushings and control arms.
Then check the torque boxes to make sure they aren't destroyed. If the car was raced alot there is a good chance they are.

If the car was slid into a curb, the wheel could have been replaced and the bent arms or boxes could still be there. In addition to the above advice, use the straight edge on the control arms.

An adjustable panhard bar will fix this, it's not that uncommon. It will allow you to center the axle.
That may be a solution on a new car, but on a fox to prevent bind you have to find the real issue. Simply pressing the rear one direction may fix the look but will cause all kinds of other problems if you don't fix it at the source.

Besides foxes don't have panhard bars from the factory.
