The rear wheel toe-in is doubtless the result of a failed hydropneumatic compensator. Remove and replace it with a mechanical spring kit.

The original compensator is very expensive, was NLA for a while, but the Classic Center apparently brought it back. We do have the far less expensive spring replacement kit for $209. That's the way I would go.
