Default Balljoint Camber bushings after leveling kit

(TTB suspension btw) So Im getting a 1.5" leveling kit from rough country. Should be here today. My question is does anyone have the slightest clue what degree camber bushings I should get for my balljoints? Im going to be replacing my balljoints at the same time. A writeup will follow.

You should not need and camber bushings. Your stock bushings are adjustable and should be enough. you more than likely will have to turn them inwards, but should still be enough to adjust outwards. If not, then space the coil more to were the tires are tipped out, then bring them in

----------

if by some odd chance you dont have the offset bushing, then buy them from napa. But you still whould only need the stock spec bushing.

My bushings are stock and not adjustable (set at 0 degrees) Balljoints have never been changed either. I can get the adjustable cams at my shop for a fraction of a price from NAPA. ( I work at an alignment shop ) I was just curious as to if I needed new bushings or not at all.

a fraction...? there only $13 at napa! hahahaha. I would just get the stock spec ones then, mine in my 96 and 97 are like the ones 4 and 5 down in the linky.

I pay about $5 lol I appreciate your help dude. I pulled it into the shop after work and I only need one upper balljoint and one Passenger inner tre. All for around $60. Im hoping to get this stuff on this weekend. I got a guy coming from one of the gas companies on Sat. to get work done to his vehicle. Brake pads and power steering pump/pulley. Less than $150 in parts and Im charging him $375. The garage quoted him $450 so Im still under lol Im making bank on it though for sure. MAYBE 2 hours labor if I run into a snag
