Four link question?

I have a 4 link on the rear end and it really looks like one side of the rear is out of alignment. Question is , can I adjust the 4 link bars to bring it in alignment and if so is this something I should leave up to the alignment shop ?

It may or may not be a problem.
We need more details or pictures.

If it performs well, rides, wears the tires well then I'd, well, worry about something else.

Having a 4 link tells us nothing. There are several diffrent styles of 4 link, several diffrent bushing choices, track bar, shock location, bracket location. Not to even to start to talk about the suspension aspects.
A 4 link can cause binding, vibration, to pulling or diving, once the suspension settles.

This could be as simple as a bushing that just needs to wear in(new rubber rubbing on metal) to a mismatched shock rate, to a bent axle tube.

Pictures are needed to move forward.
