Get the 3 degree bushing, put it in, and then take it down and have it aligned. The degree number is the highest it will produce, but those are adjustable, so they will give you different camber settings depending on the direction that they are installed. They can then be spun in the bore to make fine adjustment.

I got the alignment bushings from NAPA, they take a little bit of understanding for an alignment tech to get (they usually want the computer to do all the work for them and just spin the damn thing), but if you manage to get the technician to read the enclosed instructions you are on your way

Moog #K80109. 0-4 degree adjustable. Used those on two trucks I did the 2" level kit on. They come with a chart so depending on your knowledge and confidence level you can actually align the truck pretty easily yourself. The bushings do both caster and camber so you just have to adjust the toe seperatly by adjusting tie rods.

1987 ranger xlt 2.9 rwd camber issues after 2 in leveling kit

So I lifted my ranger with coil spacers and have come accros some major camber issues. Passenger side at 4.4 positive camber and driver at 3.3 positive camber. I’ve been looking for camber/ caster kits to remedy the issue but it seems that there are only up to +\-3 camber bushings made for the 87 ranger. Does anyone know some alternative solutions for getting the vehicle closest to no camber?

You can drop the axle beam pivot locations with some longer axle pivot brakets, you can cut and turn the axle beams, and you can also cut the lower balljoint mount and move it outwards. You'll also want to drop your radius arms to get a better caster angle and you may also want to check the angle on your steering.
