Measured the height and it's 25-1/4 inches from the ground on both sides.

Ride height may not be accurate, directly affecting camber. You might consider investing in camber plates as it appears you're lowered.

First & foremost, alignment/ride height measurements should be taken when the vehicle's on a level surface. Can use a water level to verify.

Then, ride height's generally taken from the top of the wheel well arch sheet metal to the bottom of the rim, true vertical. Stock front measurement for a 19" rim is 24.60".

How are toe & camber being measured? Should do toe to a zero thrust angle line.
