Everything is in so tight I can't get my bearings. Have any pictures backed off a little bit? Maybe an "overall" shot showing this region for referencing the orientation of the other pics?

On the beam type front axle, it looks like the camber is fixed by the king pin angle.
I don't see any adjustment.
If the camber is out of spec, look at inspecting the lower and upper king pin if they have bushings. It there is visible bushing wear, replace them to bring the camber to specs.
The king pinsneed to be lubed with grease on a regular basis to minimize wear

Agree It doesn't look like there is a way to adjust the camber here. I have been greasing the kingpins,,
My front tire tread is wearing on the outside, Planning to replace tires and shocks and air them up to 70-80psi and should be good for another 40k at least.

At least get an alignment to get the toe adjusted when you buy new tires.

Check the tire pressure sticker on the B pillar for the correct tire pressure.

If you have load range E tires, go to a truck scale and get the axle weights and adjust tire pressure based on each tire load.
