Suspension Question

I wasnt sure where to post this so I put it in general. I have a 96 F350 2wd with twin traction beams up front. I have a bad camber problem. It is stock suspension most of it being original. Im thinking the coil springs have just worn out but I am wondering if there is anything else I need to look at as well. It seems like the springs are the only thing that hold camber on these trucks but there might be bushings or something else that Im not seeing causing the problem. I just dont want to spend a ton of money replacing perfectly fine parts. Thanks in advance

The upper ball joints should have camber adjustments and I believe you can get em with more offset if neccessary.The adjuster is simple,the hole is not centered and when you turn it the ball joint will change position.In the old days ,guys would actually bend the I beam but that is a no no
