Temporary camber adjustment?

Just installed a 2.5 lift on the front, and now it's got some serious positive camber. Any way to quickly adjust it so it looks level before it goes to get an alignment?

No. You need to get the alignment done. Unless you have a caster/camber gauge and some turn plates to do it yourself. A computer gets it done much more accurate. You will more than likely need to get different uca's to correct the lack of + caster that the lift takes out of it.

I liked her until she married that dimwit (Though they did divorce) and it was a better fantasy with her song until she did an interviews and said she is not gay or bi, and has never actually kissed a girl.

As for the camber, I agree with his response: Just take it down and get it done at an alignment shop.
