front suspension repair gone wrong!

I have a '01 2wd F150 with a 3.5" fabtech spindle lift with fabtech
upper control arms. The passenger side lower ball joint was blown out,
very damaged, and it had worn the spindle at the joining point of the
lower ball joint. Both pieces were repaired. Before the repair I had no
major alignment problems, only a terrible squeak. Now there is a
problem!The truck looks fine when at a stand still, and even when
driving forward. The problem is when the vehicle is put into reverse
and driven. The passenger side wheel is off camber negatively (the top
is tilted in). Fabtech tells me I have to have the truck aligned, no
shit! I have not had the pickup aligned yet because I fear that there
is something else wrong thats need repairing first, and I can do that
in my garage. If anyone has any information on what could be happening
PLEASE share!!!!
