Alignment Cam Kit?

I just got off the phone with Dave at Zone Offroad (very helpful guy) I ordered a Zone 3" Suspension/1.25" BL, MML combo. I have a quick question, I was asked whether or not I wanted an alignment cam kit.....

So I have two questions. Do I need it? Whats the best way to check if I already have a cam kit installed?

Pretty sure they are needed if lower control arms are not adjustable, like mine... but my factory arms had cam bolts.

Do you have cam bolts on yours?

I don't have the cam bolts on mine, which is probably not good. The cam bolts are used to help adjust your alignment.

I figure if it has been aligned before, it must have them.

The cam bolt kit is only $30 so if I don't have it, it's no big deal.
