Lower control arms

After having the Zone 3" installed for quite some time and after an alignment, I noticed that at some low speeds, I'll receive a slight wobble in the wheel. I don't know if it's because the camber is off by .5 degrees but its the only solution I can come up with. I travel a lot of highway so at higher speeds I get the slight vibrations from the camber being misaligned. Is it possible that it's loosening up my steering and causing the wobble? If so, how much are adjustable lower control arms and will they solve this problem?

you have a solid front axle, lower control arms won't change camber. only way to change camber is offset ball joints, but 0.5° camber is within spec.

adding LCA's will give you the ability to change caster however.

I know it isn't death wobble, but good reading to help isolate it here.
