The term for what you're describing is negative camber. Why your Lexus has negative camber on one wheel is beyond me. I'd take it to a decent mechanic and ask for them to align it. It shouldn't run you more than $50.

Your vehicle will need a four wheel alignment which will cost $100 or more at any quality alignment shop. In addition, However, something in the front suspension may be bent or a ball joint or some other component worn out and repairs will be needed to correct the problem. Have the vehicle inspected by a trusted alignment shop and see what really needs to be done.

Good luck.

The lower control arm has a very large cam bolt to adjust the front camber, it could have been adjusted or replaced and not reset. But as said, any competent alignment shop can handle it, your car isn't anything difficult or obscure to align.

They're not easy to bend, it likely took a pretty good hit to bend it.
