Check your tire inflation.

crappy upper ball joints/control arms maybe..mine did that, almost, the outside was choppy after 2 alignment, new arms and an alignment cured the problem.

You might also want to consider slowing down for the turns.

Yes I kindy go fast on turns. But wouldnt the aggressive alignment specs produce more wear than i already have?

Thumbs up

Mine are doing the same thing. The set-up looks like a neutral to positive camber. I think my prob. is bushings in the control arms. I am going to have them checked and then have the camber set to the aggressive +1.3 setting. I like to run 60 MPH on the clover leafes!!!

It's probably the tire inflation, i had the same problem on my jeep that i had (i changed the psi alot for 4 wheeling, boy i miss that ) but that is most likely your problem.
