OME HD Tire wear fix

So I have noticed that the outside tread of my front tires is wearing MUCH faster than the tread on the inside. I have the OME HD, and It seems like the tires may not be "flat" on the ground anymore, but instead the top of the tires may be tilted slightly outward. I attached a picture of the outside tread and the inside tread.

Would these fix the problem?

I am getting new tires this fall and I don't want the same thing to happen to them!

Did you have an alignment done after the lift was installed? I had mine aligned right after installation because it was way off.

Like Discman said, the fix is an alignment. Unless they weren't able to bring the alignment back in spec, no, new control arms won't fix it.

Speaking of alignment, I have to go to a "special" 4x4 shop to get mine aligned because I have no idea what te specs are supposed to be. Does anyone know what the specs are? (Sorry for hi-jacking)

Take the wheels/tires in and have them mounted and balanced as carry ins.
