uneven wear is typically an alignment issue...........

an alignment is needed everytime you mess with the suspension

Sounds to me like the Camber is off if the inside of both fronts are wearing fast

Re: Balance or alignment??
i had to take my jeep back to the shop after they installed my bwoody's and aligned it.....they claimed the couldnt adjust the camber, so i printed off some stuff from the forum here and showed them it was possible to adjust the camber, the mechanic claimed he got the camber within spec range, but i dont think he im gonna take it to someone else, i may say f*ck it and just get the adjustable ball joints so that i know 4 or 5 months down the road i dont have to buy new tires .........just my experience
