Default passenger side tire wear inside

when i was working on car had car jacked up and of course jack slipped out and bent trailing arm so i re bent it back to where its so close to straight again anyways noticed tire on the bent trailing arm side ( passenger side) i have tire wear on inside of tire i was reading that rear suspension is adjustable by adjusting the latterial arms is it true on the 01 saturn sc2? or could it possible be bushings that need to be replaced car has almost 210k on it nothing is aftermarket on the car for suspension wise everything is OEM

I think you're describing a camber problem. Adjustment is as shown, from the service manual.

Those arms will be somewhat weak if they've been bent and I'd recommend replacing the bent arm.

Either way you need an alignment. Even know what to adjust is just guessing unless you have the machine to put it on
