Ya got an alignment shop around? I can't imagine they wouldn't know why you have negative camber that can't be diagnosed....

Could be ball joints or wheel bearing. You should be hearing/feeling other symptoms too tho. You know how to check them?

What does it do when you lift/hoist the truck? My truck had wasted ball joints one side was sloppy and the other (which had neg camber) had a upper ball joint that was so jacked it was stuck in that position and wouldnt allow it to move to show signs of slop.

If its that bad I would start tearing it down and inspecting everything, something is causing it.

Jack that corner of the truck up so the tire is a couple inches off the ground. Get a good heavy bar at least 4' long. Get someone strong to put the bar under the tire from the side and lift up and down repeatedly on the tire while you stick your head under the truck with a flashlight and inspect the upper and lower ball joints and the wheel bearing for ANY movement. Then have the person grab the top and bottom of the tire and wiggle it (push in at the top while pulling on the bottom and vice versa) and inspect everything again. Then have the person grab the tire on the sides and do the same thing.

It's important for your helper to be strong and to do the tire movement as hard as possible.

I just redid my wheel bearings cause I had a lean on my front right.
