Why bother for 1 degree on a trail rig? Or is this still street driven regularly too?
I prefer about half a degree myself, but your 1 degree is right at the minimum of factory specs, so is not out of line certainly for a trail-only truck where tire wear and straight line stability are not usually taken into account.

If it's still driven on the street, I would shoot for half a degree if possible. I'm pretty sure there are some here who have tried the zero-degree setting and not been happy with it on the street.

And if you already have shims but they're not in the range you want, you can rotate the around to change the effect on camber accordingly. This will change the toe, but that's easy to adjust back to where you like it.
Same for the eccentric ball joint sleeves. Even if they're being used for caster correction, a little twist will change your camber as well. You lose a bit of your caster to the camber angle, but that's not as big a deal for a trail rig either.

Just a few extra options anyway.
If this is still a street rig, I can understand spending the time to dial out a little extra camber.

Good luck.

Thanks guys.

Dirt Donk - Yes, it is my trail rig but I will be driving to the trails like Big Bear and Sierra's so want to get the alignment as close as I can. And and alignment guy showed me some adjustable shims so I can adjust if I do not like the 0 degree camber. I have about 3.6 degrees on the caster and will use the ball joint sleeve for some more caster. Thanks.

Sounds good. Yeah, on the street you'll at least improve your tire wear if not all the other things as well.
Let us know what you end up doing and how you like the results.
