It's not that bad. I wouldn't worry about it as long as it goes straight. That will not wear the tires uneven. There is an adjustment for it if it becomes worse.

Looks like worn lower ball joints.

Raise the RF wheel by the lower control arm until the tire is an inch off the ground. Use a prybar and lift up the tire and observe the lower ball joint. Does it compress? If so I would change it.

I actually took it in for alignment because I just changed the upper and lower ball joints.

Interesting..could be worn lower bushings or upper control arm bushings but hard to say. I don't know if the LCA has camber adjustments, think it's only caster. Someone else can chime in on that.

Right has an extra degree of caster as well,.... :undecided: did you change the whole lower control arm or just the lower ball joint?

I do alignments and there are adjusts for both camber and caster

There you have it.....I would take it back and have them align your vehicle like you paid for it. I went through this myself with the caster and they said I need to pay an extra $80 bucks or so for the caster.....I kindly declined the payment and told them I already paid for an alignment.

Adding camber blocks or something I would understand....but not loosening a couple bolts.
