2007 With Negative Camber

I just purchased a 2007 TRX450er about a week ago as the 3 owner. The bike has noticeable negative camber. I was thinking I could correct this using the tie rod adjustment but quickly learned differently.

Everything in the front suspension seems tight except a little play in the front wheel bearings. I have a set of those ordered. The one difference with this quad is for some unknown reason, the original owner replaced the stock front shocks with a set of 400ex front shocks. A lot of people swap out there 400ex shocks for 450r shocks but Ive never seen the opposite done before. I was wondering, since 400ex shocks are shorter than 450r shocks, could that be causing the negative camber in this case?

The shocks are to short to work properly.

Ok. I was wondering. I was planning to get a set of 450r front shocks for it anyway.
