Need a little camber help before this weekend

I have a 2000 2wd. I just installed the 2.5 inch leveling kit last weekend and it looks awesome. Obviously my tires are unbelievably toed in now. I know Ill need a camber replacement and im taking it to the allignment shop friday to see just how much it needs. I have been told by a member here that its probably around 2.5 degrees. My shop wants me to install the cambers for them. Im fine with that cause it will save me money. Im pretty good with working on this stuff I just have never done cambers before, although I have removed many ball joints (lots of chevy leveling kits for friends) so I dont think I will have too much trouble. Can anyone give me any advice on the install, maybe a link to something that helps? Anyone put these in before? thanks!
