Alignment Tips/Recommendations?

I recently got the Firestone Lifetime Alignment after lifting (JBA 2.5" Silver) and they were not able to get everything in spec. Does anyone have any tips or recommendations I can provide Firestone to get the alignment in spec? I was told alignment numbers were ok as far as tire wear and driveability.
Here's the specs:

i take it stock UCA's still? If yes to that your not going to get a good alignment for some time,later down the road after the lift settles it will get better.


Tell them to sacrifice caster to get camber in spec,just make sure cross caster is within 0.5 degrees and you will be fine.

Thanks for the tip.
I've got JBA's UCAs and the lift has been on for over 2K miles with lots of trips to the beach (deep ruts, very soft sand) and I live at the end of an unpaved road.
I just put RL Sliders, SpiderTrax spacers, and rotated the tires. Tire wear and handling have been great, just wanting to see if alignment can be in spec. I'm taking it back to Firestone Monday.
Thanks again.

Sorry, just reread my first post, guess I should have defined "recently".
