How to get Camber Alignment right after a lift

I'll be installing the bilstien 5100s this weekend on my 2011 2wd.

I've read that getting the camber aligned can be very difficult after a lift (unless I purchase a new UCA). I'm holding off on the UCA for now...

I think it's the camber that is the most difficult after a lift right?

Does anybody have any tips on how I can get the camber aligned properly? Any common remedies/tricks?

What is the difference between a lift time alignment and a one time alignment?

OP, I got my truck aligned immediately after I put the lift on, and as everything settled the alignment seemed to go to shit. I ended up doing another about 1 month after the install.

This is why I think it's a good idea to fork out for the lifetime alignment from Firestone.
