My credo
If it's not broken Don't Fix It!
I am guessing they are stock but I brought in the 2 piece moog bushings with me but they didn’t think it would be enough to correct it, also they said the ones that are in there were already pretty aggressive. Maybe I’ll pull the wheel off and see what I can do myself, i really didn’t feel like messing with it lol, i just wanted to drop it off and have it done.
The camber bushings come in different degrees. Maybe you will need ones that throw further. I've seen , .5°, .75°, 1°, 1.25°, 1.5°, 2° and 2.5° bushings.

trying for 5.5-6
So I’m reading the chart for the bushings i got (see picture) and it shows 2 degrees for 1987-1995 F150 and E150 and only 1.75 degrees for 1989-1995 rangers and broncos only 1.75 degree

I found another bushing on amazon that says it will go to 4 degrees maybe I’ll just buy one of those for the passenger side wheel

here’s what the alignment shop gave me if any gurus have any suggestions, I’d be happy to hear it

I have seen this issue come up a few times in the past with the Skyjacker brackets. For reasons unknown, Skyjacker puts the holes on the two sides at different drop amounts (3" & 5" for the passengerside axlebeam, and 4.25" & 6" for the driverside beam). If you try to max out your lift height using spacers, it causes one side's camber bushing to max out well before the other.

Agreed, running the passengerside beam in the lower hole, and the driverside beam in the upper hole will not be an issue. If you really want to match things up, drill a third 9/16" hole through the cast bracket for the passengerside beam in between the two existing holes. This should make things more symmetrical when it comes to aligning it.
