Default leveling issues

I put 2 in coil spacers on my truck and went to get an alignment and they tell me they can't do the alignment even though I have the camber kit on there already.... apparently the 2 in spacers are too much lift.... is there anyway around this or do I just need to dump the "Cheap route"... thanks

Just use F250 springs, super easy, fairly cheap.

Go to a different shop. You can most certainly get camber adjusted with the spacers in there.

Yep take it somewhere else for sure.

Then take the spec sheet with your new perfect alignment to the old place to show them, haha

Alright the guy is telling me they adjusted it as much as they could and now he is saying I'd have to drop the I beam pivot point or some crap like that... I just don't want to ruin my damn MTs...
