tj wears right front only

Hi I have been racking my brain as to why my tj would wear the out side of the right front tire and none of the others. I have a three inch lift. I was trying to get by for a few months without buying trackbars but I might not have a choice. I looked at the left front and it is wearing normal. I would think if it was an alignment issue it would wear both tires. I also checked the knuckles they also seem fine. I am stumped.

Trackbar unlikely to help what you are describing. Something is wrong on that side of the front setup. Look at your jeep from the front. Does it look like you have excessively positive camber on the side that is wearing? When you say you checked the knuckles what does that mean? Did you check ball joints? Unit bearing? Control arm bushings? Is the axle tube on that side straight?

I checked the ball joints. Nothing appears to be bent. I rotated my tires about a 1500 miles ago, when I did that I didn't not any camber issues then. But beings the outside of the tire is worn its kinda hard to tell right now.
