how do i fix this

i'm having trouble keeping tread on the inside edge of my front tires. i have 2" drop springs from skunk2 and an eibach +/- 1 degree camber kit(front and back). i don't have any problems with the back, just the front. i know i have the camber kit set correctly but i can't seem to keep my front tires on for more than six months before they need replacing. any suggestions on what could be wrong or what i could do to fix this, i.e. alignment, different camber kit. anybody with the same drop height as me have this problem an have it fixed. all help would be appreciated.

thanx

sounds like something might be bent. Did you do the alignment or did you have it done? If you didn't have an alignment done then that could be your problem right there.

i would definitely consider an alignment. hey, while I am on this... Firestone tire stores offer a Lifetime alignment - good for the life of your car.
