Ball joints?

My 04 F350 CC Dually suffers from extreme negative camber. I suspect ball joints. Its going in the shop tomorrow and don't want to get hit with a bunch of other stuff. Am I correct in suspecting the ball joints?

you could have inspected yourself but now it's in the shops hands

how did u determine camber angle?

could be a blown unit bearing or 2 but other than that those are the things that affect camber
dually s just amplify the issue due to the spacer

Negative camber is so bad the front end looks cartoonish. Dually spacers or not the top of the tires are at a serious inward slant. There is some play in the wheels with the front end jacked up and wheels rocked at 12 and 6. But I didn't think ball joints would cause the tires/wheels to lean in so severely.
