I recently picked up this 74 project. the drivers side have bad camber. I pulled stuff apart today hoping it was bad bearings but I did not get so lucky. The passenger side is good so I pulled it apart as well and put an angle finder on it. You can see the difference. the red arrow is the good side. Where do I go from here?

Not an expert but looks like a bent trailing arm to me.

Bent trailing arm for the win. Took it off and it has a good dent and crinkle right by where the axle goes through

Glad you found the issue. May as well put bushing on both sides and go through the rest of the rear suspension, bearings, brakes... while you're in there.
