Default Negative camber on a stock ranger

I have a stock ranger that has a negative camber and keeps eating through the front tires. Is there a kit to fix this since the camber is non adjustable. The truck is a 1996 Mazda b4000 4wd

Well obviously If it's stock and you have negative camber you should probably get an alignment and replace some suspension parts as they could be worn out.

Pssst... You set camber by loosening the adjustment bolts, lowering the truck down to put weight on it, then tightening them back down..
