Default camber adjustment

Since I bought the truck it's always had positive camber. The ball joints were bad, I thought that could be the problem so I put in new uppers and lowers and the problem is still here. I've done a lot of looking at the truck trying to play around with the upper control arms, but it sees like that adjusts caster. I'm hoping someone could help shed some light before I get too much wear on the outside of my tires.

Take it to a shop with an alignment rack. If you are adjusting caster thats also were you adjust camber. If you've been messing with it you have also been adjusting toe. Make sure the cams in the upper control arm are slotted and take to someone for an alignment.

If its never had the camber/acster adjusted then you have to remove the upper control and remove the "Knock outs". the factory sets the control arms and they are not adjustable. Once you remove the "knock outs" you can get quite a bit of adjustment out of it. The "knock outs" are in the bracket on the frame.
