take it to an alignment shop to verify its a bad axle before you spend the dough. could just be out of alignment.

take it to an alignment shop, if camber is out of spec there are offset balljoints available to fix any camber/caster issues you may have.

How did you check ball joints? Sometimes grabbing the wheels on a truck with a 5000 pound front end doesnt do much. I would jack just the one side up and put a long bar under the wheel and try rocking back and forth. If no play then you need an alignment and will probably have to have an eccentric upper ball joint installed. I am a professional in the alignment field and keep those big semi's going straight. Chances of that axle actually being bent and causing a camber issue is very slim. Most axles i see that are bent from an accident have toe issues. Its possible you could have a loose wheel bearing as well, sometimes they can be hard to detect until they blow up.
