advice,opinions please!

Just got a front end alignment done, my drivers side front tire is getting a nasty wave pattern in it and I have been getting DW at around 55mph. The guy told me the alignment wasn't off by much but the camber is. He said it can't be adjusted since its a solid axle. He said something is bent and it's going to continue to chew up my front tires. He also said the best thing to do in his opinion is to just rotate the tires every oil change so they don't get destroyed quickly. This is a guy I trust and he is not trying to get any money out of me just telling me that my axle or something is bent. anyone have this problem? What do you do about it? just rotate often?

The front left camber is -1.1 and the range is -0.9 to 0.4

Bent tube. Fairly common with a D30/Rubi D44. Get it straightened or live with it. Or look for a replacement housing.
