Got an alignment today because my steering wheel was crooked driving straight after getting stuck wheeling. This has happened before and normally I adjust the drag link and call it a day. But, because these are new tires I wanted to make sure the toe is correct. Sure enough, it was off and also the left front camber was out of spec. is this something to be concerned with?

Well it should be between 0.4* and -0.9*, so yes that is out of spec. This should have been readjusted into spec during the alignment.

I guess my point is that you cant adjust camber on a TJ. So, is something bent? How do I check if the axle tube or "C" is bent? Just measure? And will this kill my tires or can I live with it as is?

Well i think you have at least 3 possible problems: ball joints loose, C is bent, or axle tube is bent. I would check the ball joints first because that is the easiest. If you have a bent C you can get offset ball joints to correct camber.

How do you suggest that this "readjustment" be accomplished?
Bad choice of words. Corrected is a better way to put it. A shop could install adjustable/offset ball joints if the C or axle tube is bent.
