Passenger Wheel camber is really off?!

I had an accident a little while back and it forced me to replace the brake line caliper, fender, and upper control arm. I took the car to get an alignment and new tires and have been driving it with the camber on the passenger side at about -3 and the drivers close to 0. I decided to replace the lower control arm a week ago amd everything went smooth but, by eyeing it, the camber looks only a little bit better than what it was. The car also pulls to the left pretty quickly.

The previous alignment sounds like it was performed on bent/defective parts. Now that you've replaced the, you're going to want another alignment.

But our vehicles don't have adjustible camber so wouldn't there be something else going on?

Why in the world do you think that our cars do not have adjustable camber?

When I was given the data sheet it stated that camber didnt change but the caster and toe did slightly. The guy told me he couldn't do anything without a adjustible kit on the car. Is this true?

Yes, this is true. The camber adjustment is more than likely maxed out, hence the suggestion of needing a camber kit. But that doesn't mean that it can't be adjusted at all, as you mentioned above. Our car's camber can indeed be adjusted from the factory, with or without a camber kit.

So I'll go ahead and get an alignment, if that doesn't work what do you think should be my next step? (By the way there is no frame damage).

I would still invest in a camber kit. You may not have enough adjustment to get your camber within spec.
