Camber adjustment-Dana 44

I had an F250 HP Dana 44 narrowed to Waggy width.
I'm using the Reid Racing "Bronco" knuckles, Synergy ball joints and I'm SUA.
Everything is new.
I just checked the alignment, and the left side has -1.3 degrees camber, the right side had .7 degrees camber.
I'm thinking the way to fix this is the old school behind the spindle camber shims. I'm not interested in the adjustable ball joints since I'm using the Synergy ball joints.
So, a 1 3/8 degree shim for the left side and 3/4 degree shim for the right side?
What do you guys think?

No the sleeve is for preload not camber/caster adjustment.

There are adjustable ball joints (or BJ`s if you prefer) but I suspect that you have other issues

No reason not to run them. Fairly common and your local alignment shop should be able to get them for you if they don't already have them on the shelf.

OTR truck repair places can adjust the camber on solid axles. I have seen it done on stuff that makes a D44 look like a toy.

Kinda scary to watch, but the way they were all done back in the day.

418 miles on 19 gallons of gas. Can't beat the BBD !

Pardon my ignorance, but what are OTR?
