96 4x4 Suburban CAMBER HELP!!!!!

ok, so i have a 96 3/4 ton subruban 4x4, tortion keys intalled and cranked little, my camber is now like this..... // \\ .... i obviously want the tires to sit like this.... || || ....... i took the truck to my local reputable allignment shop and they told me there is something that needs to be "knocked out" after removing the upper a-arm bolts. i can see the cams on either side of the bolt. i was quoted an insane price to have them "knock out" whatever it is needs to be removed, but i know with a little help and direction i can do this my self and save half the cost. is there anyone who has done this before or could help??? that would be greatly appreciated. thank you

if u have any experience with removing the upper control arms, the knockouts are not real hard, if i remember right, they are on the inside of the dual bracket, if that makes sense, u can see the outline of it if u clean it off good, take air chisel or hammer and chisel and start pickin away, then they can align it, it sucks when i do it at work for pennies extra, lol...

There is a tool for removing those too, I use mine alot. The knock outs will be on the inner side of the control arm brackets. I used to use a air hammer to get them out but since I got the tool it went to minutes to remove them all. The alignment won't be pretty, but the camber can be brought around but you will lose caster in the trade off.
