6 degrees camber and you have to ask? Have it aligned properly. Also check for anything loose. Last thing check bump-steer. good luck

I would call CCR and see if the axle and spindles are compatible. Just because the king pin dia is the same does not mean they will work together. The king pin angle may be different between them. If CCR says yes, then look to see if the spindles are on the wrong side. 6 degrees is too much.

Yes, lack of positive castor would be the problem. Camber problems will just wear out the tires quicker...
