So after a 3.5" spindle lift and new tires, i went to a local frame shop to get it aligned. He originally said $55 but stuck his head under, came back up and said nevermind $220. I was like, "like hell, for what?! you gonna throw a supercharger on it too???!!!" He said cause i lifted it, it now requires alignment cams instead of the preset shims. Techinally spindles arent a lift so i want to make sure i absolutely need those in order to have it properly aligned. Should i try the dealer? Any advice/opinions/experience, would be greatly appriciated.

I've done alignments for years, every truck is truly different but I found most of our trucks require at least one cam to be perfect. I would like to think your technician was merely covering himself. We charged 85 for an alignment, the parts are about 50 for all 4 adjusters and a half-hour per side labor. So the estimate sounds decent depending the labor rate.
