Default 2011 2500 Camber out of spec

Has anyone else had problems with the camber on their truck being out of spec? I recently had the wheel alignment checked at an independent shop. The camber is out of spec. The only way to correct the camber is to install offset top ball joints. The truck has only 50k km and is all stock. The mechanic said there is no way a truck with only 50k km and good ball joints should be out of spec. He has seen this a couple of other times and suspects the axle tube coming out of the differential is bending a little to put the camber out.

This was the second shop that checked it. The first was at Kal Tire. I put new tires on and they checked the alignment and told me the same thing. the camber was out of spec and they would have to change ball joints to fix it. I have it booked into the dealer next week, so will see what they have to say.

I also have been told that my front end is out of spec, by a reputable frame and alignment shop here in Southern California. They said they average two Ram Trucks a week where they change out the ball joint, as the stock is not adjustable. I'm going to take it in next week as I only have 2,000 miles on it and see what they say. My truck is a 2013 model 2500HD diesel.
