Steering Alignment

I have been doing some research on how to do my own alignment, or at least check my alignment. It doesn't seem to be wearing tires out, just the good 'ol 'steering wheel at 11:00 to go straight" story. I'm about to take my first 1000+ mile trip in my F250 and was thinking about fixing the alignment, or it will drive me nuts.

I read in another thread that you can adjust the steering wheel position by lengthening/shortening the connection between the pitman arm and passenger side steering knuckle. (Is this correct???)

My main question is, Is there no CAMBER adjustment on a truck with with a solid front axle? I know just enough about this issue to be dangerous, so if anyone's got some advice, I'd appreciate it...

Yes, It's smarter to go have it aligned professionally, but I can't afford it.

Thanks
