68 with to much positive camber?

I'm almost finished with my 68 and would appreciate any help I can get on this subject. I've installed a set of hotchkis 2" lowering springs in the front and it looks like I've got to much positive camber. The wheels have got a noticeable lean out at the top. Right now I've got stock upper and lower control arms and I'm wondering if I will have to get a set of the hotchkis uppers to correct this? Haven't been to my alignment shop yet, was wanting some good input first.

You might add equal number of shims to the upper control arms.

You should get it aligned before worrying too much about this. I also recommend you research where you want the alignment set because factory is not where you want it on a pro-touring car.

Chad, Don't sweat over it. Take it to a reputable alignment shop. They
should be able to explain to you what is needed if anything other than
just an alignment.
