e30 suspension issues

hello all, i have a super eta whos tires fold inwards when I'm driving forwards and fold out when I'm driving backwards, i bought the car with this issue and i have changed the rack and lower control arms and bushings, by the looks of it the previous owner changed the outer tie rods and tried to see if that would get rid of the problem i mentioned but it didn't so almost all my front suspensions parts are new, but I'm still having that issue with the wheels moving around, any suggestions as to what might cause this problem and what i might do to fix it? thanks, and this is my first car and i did everything myself with my dad and were not car experts so we might've messed up along the process but any help will be welcome, thanks

One of you twists the wheel and one watches to see what is moving to show the broken or worn parts. Its just observation. Not a thing we can do remotely for you.

I've just changed my wiper blades and now my reverse lights don't work. Should I change my fuel pump relay?
