Positive Passenger Side Camber and upside down cam bolts

Hey Everyone,

Have been on the forums for a while know, but primarily just use it for gathering information. I primarily am able to find what I need, but this time I have run into a problem and am reaching out for help.

Recently installed the "Tundra" lift that Speedy's Garage installed. Bilstein 5100 up front with new factory Tundra springs. In the rear I installed the Tundra Bilstein 5100s and OME 906 springs. At the same time I installed JBAoffroad UCAs and new Strongflex bushings in the LCA (purchased from Sonoran Steel. Yellows in front, red in rear). Also installed a eimkeith PCK to make sure everything stayed aligned in the rear and I couldn't increase the lift in the future without a problem if I wanted.

Against my better judgement, I took the 4Runner over to NTB to get an alignment. I knew it wasn't going to be the greatest, but I currently have new wheels and tires on order and wanted to make sure it was at least somewhat aligned before they got in.

NTB left me with a front right camber of 1.5degrees and a pull to the left (steering wheel has to be pulled to the right to keep the car going straight). Additionally when looking at the cam bolts, most of them are now upside down and not necessarily in the alignment tabs.

I want to get this fixed before my new tires come in and want to make sure that it is done right. What is everyone's advise and what should I tell the next alignment shop that I go to?

Thanks for the help everyone.

I hope they didn't charge you for that alignment. Do you have any pictures of the cam bolts that you suspect are wrong?

Unfortunately I did pay for it, but have learned my lesson on it. Going to try to get some pictures of the cam bolts for reference, but unfortunately it probably won't be a for a couple of days.

Easiest way I can describe their orientation is the alignment marks are all point toward the ground and it appears that most of the cams were just "adjusted" incorrectly and then tightened back down. Will try to grab some photos for reference.

Unfortunately I live in an apartment complex and haven't been able to get to somewhere that I can drop the skids out of the way to get better pictures.

I have included a photo of the drive side rear cam and it shows to be pointing downward. I am not an expert, but wanted to share for reference as this is how the majority of the bolts look and don't appear to be doing anything to help the alignment.
