TJ neg camber problem

I went past a tyre place today to get my alignment checked and found out I have -1,5deg on the left side

I was running 32's for a while and that front left had a really slow puncture and would gradually go down to about 1.5bar (not sure what PSI that is)all the time. I thought this was causing the jeep to pull left on the highway, but now i've changed to brand new 33's and the pulling continues which is why I went for the alignment today.

So camber:
left -1.50
right -0.11
Caster
left 4,16
right 4,25


Is there anything else besides a bent axle that could cause this? I don't remember hitting anything particularly hard, I don't do any highspeed wheeling or jumping things or anything.
It' a Sahara so D30 right?

Was planning on taking the TJ on a pretty long overlanding trip through Botswana next month but the possibility of extreme tyre wear worries me now.

Bad wheel bearing, bad ball joint is the only thing to effect camber on these axles, unless you have a bent tube or bent C

Ok so it's worth jacking it up and fiddling this weekend then. I'll see if I can see/feel anything wrong.

Arg.

Bearing seems fine, can't feel any play, not noisy...Balljoints seem ok...not entirely sure what I'm looking for, but prying the wheel up from underneath doesn't show anything strange.

Is there oil leaking from your axle tubes or anything? Or are the seals getting eaten up quickly? When my axle was bent that would happen all the time.
