TTB, camber is maxed, still lots of positive camber

Hello,
the previous owner installed some really tall springs in the front end of my 350, and i noticed it has camber bushings, but they are maxed out, and its still sitting with a lot of positive camber (feels real bad in corners man!). Ive read that you can buy 3 degree bushings or 5 deg bushings. Im hoping this thing has 3 deg bushing kit and i can swap in a 5 deg. Lowering the front is not an option as
a) dont want to dump money on springs as im saying for a 4wd conversion
b) i like the jacked up look (now just need to bring the rear up)

so-what is the most cost effective way to get neutral or 1/4-0.5 degrees negative camber or whatever stock calls for??

Hmmm...

Sounds like the 5* camber bushings are your only option at this point...Or shorter coils...

Brackets that drop the pivots down. I believe they should have come with the lift kit. Maybe you can get them separately from a lift kit manufacturer?
