need to get and install a set of camber plates then have it realigned by a good shop.

the other tire wear you stated was caused by underinflation if both outside edges were wearing

You're probably experiencing some negative camber issues and too much toe out as a result of the lowering. Toe out is responsible for a lot of the inside edge tire wear but it can be adjusted wherein the adjustments for camber are minimal. Have them set the front toe to as close to zero as possible or with just a tad of toe out (1/32 inch or so).

sounds like your just getting bad alignments. Make sure you get your printouts and post them and guys that know a crap load about alignment adjustments like geezer can tell you the good and bad.
