Default To much positive camber..?

I installed a 2.5" HBS leveling kit a few months ago and had an alignment done the following day. But since ive installed the leveling kit the tops of my tires tilt out further than the bottom..(to much positve camber?).. Is this adjustable if i brought it back in?? Thanks for any input.

How much positive camber do you have? A certain amount is within specs and it is adjustable with the cam bolts on the lower control arms. Sounds to me like all you got was a "toe and go" alignment.

positive camber is bad for handling find out what the optimum number is and go a little negative from there.
