Default 2006 Ram Alignment problem

Alright, my truck has been lowered for a while. I had signed for a friend when it was first got (yeah i know, i shouldn't have done that, stupid mistake, but anyways) and now i have it. He lowered the truck, put shackles and a flip kit in the back. And he cut the springs in the front. Well I am eating the hell out of my tires, tires are leaning inward. Went to get it aligned, but they can't get it in spec. Is there anyway to get it in spec without buying the lowering spindles. I had seen that Eibach offers a pro-alignment kit for the 02-06 but not the 06 models, anybody know what the difference is. I am attaching the spec sheet from the alignment shop too. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

The only thing you can do as far as my knowlege is get the stock size springs back in there and get the drop spindles

Agreed. That's the right way to do it. Cutting springs is a hack job that can result in ill handling.

Well it was severly toed out . It still has a camber issue that can only be corrected by doing the lowering job correctly . It looks like it is considerably better though
