2003 Explorer XLT V8 4X4
I replaced the front upper control arms, lower ball joints and sway bar end links recently on my 2003 explorer (4.6l 4x4 )
Front tires are now wearing out on the outer edge like the front camber is off. Too much positive camber it looks like.
Now according to my research and a local alignment place you can't adjust front camber on these. So wtf do I do to fix this or what could I have done wrong in installing these parts?

Thanks for reading.

To adjust front camber, the lock shims must be removed and replaced with heavy duty washers, or purchase a camber alignment kit from Moog. (I have the set and like it).

The lock shims are located on the underside of the frame flange where the control arm studs pass through downwards. Run a few thread searches, I've posted on this particular subject multiple times, pics and diagrams included.
