When I asked about getting a mustang aligned in the rear they said they couldn't because it's sra. But when I said I had a cobra with the irs they were able to straighten it out. So try calling an see what the shops will say

Well something is wrong. Has that car ever been wrecked?
Did this just occur or did you buy it like that?

It's hard to tell if they're bad looking at them when installed on the car, but the rubber deteriorates and gets cracked and deformed.
There was a fairly recent thread where someone had this same problem and the bushings, or a bushing was the culprit.
Unless something is bent, there doesn't seem to be anything else but the bushings that could let it get that far out of alignment.

Depends on if your uppers are still good, but, yes, I'm betting new control arms would solve your problem.
Or at least get it closer... These ARE production cars.
