Add-a-leaf and alignment

Put an add a leaf kit on my truck yesterday and just came to have it aligned and the guy told me that you cant adjust the camber on these trucks without an aftermarket camber kit. Is this true? The tires need to be aligned and I really dont want to drop another $500 in an aftermarket camber kit...

Nevermind. It does have the capability to adjust the camber. However, I need to replace the upper ball joints and right side inner tie rod. I have been told to go with moog products, any recommendations? Also what about the camber kit, I think that needs to be replaced as well.

Typically any alignment shop that is any good will got or have those camber kits on hand. That should NOT be up to the customer to get them

They offered to supply them but they will charge an arm and a leg. My mechanic recommended upgrading to the moog

They have to go in a set place to get correct caster/camber. You putting them in wrong only so they can take them out and put them in right is kinda pointless.
And when they have the upper ball joints out, those camber bushing dame near fall out, it is a 2 min process to change them at that time
