Did you try searching? I searched on "camber adjustment" and found:
/f123/alignment-issues-cant-get-your-rig-aligned-after-lift-info-81538/

Here's a free FSM to help find the camber adjustment cams:

Take it to an alignment shop

Lesse, I think our front ends are similar (your 94 & my 96).

On mine, there are two nuts on the lower A-arm, where it mounts up to the frame (the wide part of the "A"). There's one on the front and one on the back of the frame. I have to pull my skidplate to see it.

Loosen those nuts (they'll be TIGHT) and you should be able to get an idea of which way to turn the cams to fix yourself up.

Standard precautions about jack stands and such REALLY apply here. You're gonna have to use a breaker bar or air impact wrench to get those nuts loose. That's a LOT of torque, and the truck will want to slide around if you just use a jack.

Use stands, set the E-brake, throw it in park if it's an auto... etc.

loosened all four nuts and bolts, so how do u adjust it it, i can see the lower a-arms can slide left to right, but the bolts just go thru the a-arms and not connected to anything...so how do i adjust to push the lower a-arms out more? Do i have to remove the a-arms from the lower brace?

seriously... you don't understand it enough to tackle it by yourself at this time. take it in, but request that you can be in the shop when it's done. watch the tech and ask him questions and you'll learn alot.

P.S. you can't adjust ONLY the camber. moving just one of the 4 cams will change camber & caster for that side, and overall toe. you can't just move one and change just that one aspect. you move one and you'll change everything... you must adjust all 4 cams, and it's an iterative process - meaning that it has to be repeated quite a few times to "dial it in" on the specs.
