Negative camber need some advice

So I got a new set of tires. 35/12.50/15 Along with tires came a free alignment.
So all numbers were in the green except for Camber.
Driver side -1.4
Passenger -1.1
Jeep drives great down the road doesn't pull its all good
Looking at the jeep when on flat ground I can see a slight slant on the drivers side. Passenger side looks fine. Its not in my head the wife saw the slant too.
I checked the whole front end no play anywhere everything is tight.
The Jeep has not been abused only 53000 miles and its a 2005.
Now are offset ball joints my only fix. Uppers and lowers and what brand are a good quality.
Any past experiences or suggestion would be helpful

I would take some sidewalk chalk and paint a broad line on the face of the tread of both tires. Drive the jeep straight forward so it rolls over the chalk line a couple of times. Then look at the tire face. Does the inside look like it is rubbed off more than the outside? Left than right? You can use this to tune your tire pressures too. Your only 3 tenths of a degree more than the passenger. Thats not a lot. Also a very small amount of play in the unit bearings will allow some negative camber.
