I still think my tire wear problems are more driver related. In about a year I will have some info to support or disprove my theory.
Have you gotten your alignment checked? Sure, the driving could be part of it but the alignment would be my first suspicion.

Excessive toe will kill tires very fast, camber does not have anywhere near as drastic of an effect.

The effects of strut tower bars on our cars are debatable at best.

for the op I would suggest the camber bolts or spc camber arms. I think I'd shoot for something like -.5 degrees for just street driving and a bit more for competition use. You could go with fords tolerances on specs too but don't let them do a 'meh, thats close enough' kinda thing.
