Crooked Porch Columns

I know this thread is old, but I am facing a similar problem with my 100 year old brick porch columns (see photo). The "foundations" of these columns consist of a few very large rocks which do not extend below the frost line, upon which an above ground concrete base was poured, then brick. The entire perimeter of the house was dug up last summer for foundation work, and this appears to have disturbed the precarious equilibrium that had held the porch columns in place...we would like a solution that preserves the original look. How was the original posters problem solved?

Thank you
