Help with leaning carport

In recent years my carport has been leaning to one side. It has gotten to the point where I'm afraid it is gonna come down with a good burst of wind soon. It sits on 4 support posts, one on each corner but it has no bracketing on top. I have no idea on how to begen to repair this. Would appreciate any instruction I can get. Thanks.

is this a wooden carport?

if the corner posts are something like 4x4s i suggest you make 45 degree "triangle brackets 8 of them for all 4 corners.. then as best you can.. winch the posts to .. a tree or something and pull them into vertical with a level..then screw these 45s onto the post and into the top rail of the roof section... this should help with stability loads...

Hope this helps---Josh

ps nothing is handier than a 2 ton hand pull winch! nothing!
