First start with an inspection to determine if it was damaged. Also, Look for crackes in the Rear Trailing Arm from rust.

After that there are rubber part that the Rear Trailing arm pivot on and rubber parts that attach the other parts of the suspension to the Body; all can effect the alinment back there; the rubber deteroiates.
