Excessive negative camber

Looking for suggestions...
2001 SMB Quigley.
Trying to get alignment done and the Dana 60 kingpin isnít adjustable for camber. Iím like 1 degree negative on one side and 1 1/2 on the other.
I know little about this stuff and Iím just passing on from alignment place what they said.
Ideas?

Thanks

I've been there before... a couple ways you could go about it:

I've made bolt-in shims out of sheet metal that I put behind the top half of the spindle, it's not ideal, but for 1-1.5į, I wouldn't sweat it.

You can remove the axle, take it to a GOOD offroad fab shop, and it can be bent back into shape by chaining down the ends and using a bottle jack to push back up in the center, then have a truss welded on.

I've used both methods before, and I'm a firm believer in axle trusses as a preventative measure.
