Default 740 Rear Axle Offset to the Right

Hey everyone. I've noticed that the rear axle on my 740 wagon is sitting over to the right. It's bad enough that the left tire has begun to rub on the wheel well. I tried measuring off the edge of the quarter panel and I'm getting about a 1 inch difference between each side.

The suspension on the car is original but I wouldn't think the rear springs would sag far enough to cause the panhard bar to shove it that far over. Tires are 205/65/15. This car does have 2 previous accidents that I know of though they were mostly front end as far as I know. Here are some photos.

I have some new shocks I'm going to throw on this weekend. While I'm under the car, what should I check that could be causing this. Let me know what your thoughts are. Thanks for your help.
