I inherited a large covered pergola with a significant lean. It provides necessary privacy from the two-story neighbour. I'm wondering how I can best correct the lean and support the whole thing. The 6x6 in bottom pic shows how far it's leaning.

can't get a picture as it's covered in plants but i can see from my side that sitting on the fence is a type of rim joist which the 4x4s in the roof are nailed to. They don't join over the posts.
Something like this. are there up right between the posts and how many.

There are two 2x4s per section
I have some ideas, not suggestions as such, just cheap talk.



What if you installed 6x6 posts on your side, put a block between the 2x4 on the other side, cut the old post and lag the fence to the new post from the other side?

With that you could put matching new posts under the beam.
