Replaced lca bushing now I need help plz

I replaced the lower control arm bushing on 97 4runner now my wheels are super crooked
I marked them to put them back in correctly
Now one wheel is straight and the other one is pointed inward ( like the steering wheel is turning)
Did I do something wrong

You didnít do anything wrong, you just really need an alignment, get them as close as you can with a tape measure or something and get it to the alignment shop

I figured that
Do I just turn the cam to try to straighten out the crooked wheel?

There is no "put it back together how it was" really with the alignment cams and changing parts. Have an alignment done and get it dialed in. You're unlikely to hurt anything by doing a temporary eyeball adjustment yourself, but there is a chance you would so I wouldn't recommend it unless you know what you're actually doing.

He can use a level to get the wheels plumb and a tape measure to get the toe close to parallel or slightly toe in.

Don't even try messing with the cam adjuster. Just use the tie rod ends to get the toe pretty good (by good I mean as straight as possible) and drive it to get it aligned

Not uncommon for your alignment to get thrown off when putting those parts back together even if you made match marks. There's several youtube videos I've referenced using a digital or bubble level & string box that got me in the ball park before taking it in for an alignment. It's very tedious but will get you close enough to drive it to a shop. Here's a write up I've also used that was helpful.
