Exclamation HELP! Rear Right Tire Leaning In

I have a '08 Yaris 2 door Hatch and just recently my rear right (passenger) tire is leaning in at the top with unintentional negative camber and I've been trying so hard to fix it. Everytime I make a turn (mainly right turns is when it makes noises) It will make a loud grinding noise and I know it's my tire rubbing against my shock. I replaced the shock/strut because that was busted and leaking but it still did not fix my leaning tire problem. These cars don't seem to have control arms in the rear and I've been banging my head trying to figure out what's the problem. I've been trying to drive it carefully but the road that goes up to my house has a few potholes in it and I'm not sure how to fix it, any help would be greatly appreciated and if need be I can provide pictures.

Rear hub bearing probably shot. When you raised the car to replace the shock you had the opportunity to see if you could feel the wheel wiggle top to bottom, side to side.

I'm not too sure. There's a bit of play when I rock the wheel a bit, but I'm not entirely certain given the simplicity of this rear axle assembly. I've added some pictures and maybe it might clear some things up a bit, the new shock is fine, the shock seems to be fine, so I really don't know what else it could but I wouldn't doubt if it was just a bad rear hub bearing. I just wanna be sure I find whats wrong so I don't end up buying the wrong part.

These last two show off the problem the best. The left side is fine.

Exclamation

Alright so update here. I just finished replacing the wheel hub/bearing since its one whole unit together, bolted down everything back together and put the tire back on, and its still leaning. I'm at my wits end here, I have no idea what else it might be and I'm confused. I replaced both the shock and the rear wheel hub/bearing and its still leaning. I highly doubt its my spring cause its still fine. I have no idea what else it could be so anymore insight and help would be appreciated.

Based on the photos, the entire car appears to be sitting low on the right side.
Is it parked on level ground in that photo? Do you have somewhere you can park that is level?

If on level ground, it seems to be sitting evenly, I'd wonder if the rear axle is bent.

If on level ground, it seems to still be sitting low, I'd suggest checking the rear axle mounting points, particularly the condition of the bushings to see if they are torn or separated.

I would take it to a Toyota dealer And let them tell you what’s wrong. When they quote you thousands to fix it say “the car is not worth it” I’m selling it”

Then just fix it yourself

lol, I have done similar before. Can't figure out an issue after many hours of toil, take it to a mechanic and let them figure out what it is then decline for them to fix it. Sometimes it's 100 bucks well spent.

The “the car is not worth fixing“ is also good when they try to fix 10 different things which have nothing to do with the problem. Happens a lot! Nothing like being your own mechanic!
