Camber adjustment after lift

new to the forum so i would really appreciate the help,

i am new to lifting vehicles and always wanted one, so i lifted my 2006 jeep- grand cherokee with a two inch strut spacer in the front. the main reason i did it was because i tow a trailer and i put monroe sensa trac coil over
shocks in the back which jacked the rear end up even more than stock and my truck was then really nose diving. after the two inch lift i actually gained more than two inches in the front and now the front is higher than the rear. i can see that the camber in the front has been thrown off a bit but not all that much, but enough to concern me of tire wear. i took it to pep boys for a front end alignment and they said there was nothing that they could do about the camber. now i hear the wk jeeps do have a camber adjusment in the lower control arms. my question is, can i adjust enough through that or do i need to spend the $150 for adjustable upper ball joints? or should i not really worry about it?
I am sure this has been posted a million times before but please HELP!!!

you might want to try another shop that deals with lifted 4x4s,. When I worked at a tire shop years ago they only let us set the alignment to stock...
