    Tires are wearing odd on the front. All new suspension with exception of lower a arm. My camber is sligjtly off on pass side bit that doesnt explain the wear pattern ot even why on drivers side. Each lug kind of ramps up to the next lug in front of it. Hoping you can tell by photo.

    Estimate of 10k on em.
    Havent rotated i know i know
    Alignment, to my knowledge othe than camber
    Everything new except lcas
    Mostly town yes.

    The front suspension seems very hard also. When i hit a bump, depending on speed, passengers have let out explicit words.

    Could it be the springs? Weny with OME heavier spring rate.

    Bad shock dampning can cause the wheel to bounce/skip and wear funny. Given its on an edge, seems like you need to check the toe. Toed in will scuff/scallop the outside edge like that. I have a toe out issue on one of my vehicles and I see the exact same pattern but on the inside. Too much negative camber would cause toe out. Pure amateur here though...
