Help asap please

So I have noticed that my front tires tilt inward. I am not sure if this is an alignment problem or my upper ball joints might be busted... I have had several alignments done on the vehicle, but I can't eliminate the tires from tilting inward like these pictures. Could it be a upper ball joints? I noticed when i was replacing lower ball joints and a front drive axle the underside of the upper ball joint had a small chunk of metal missing. I am not sure which side it was though. I have jumped the truck several times before. Here is the pics.

I think it might be time to investigate a little deeper and take apart your suspension and inspect for damage before your tires fly off and you kill someone.

Also all of your suspension mods as well as alignment specks should be listed to aid in getting proper help.
Oswego is right. Inspect everything closely and if you dont turn anything up then pull it apart for a better inspection.

Spindles are the first place to look after you get alignment specs. Looks like you might have just hit it out of camber. How long has it been like this?

For a month or so. Alignment only helps with toe not camber. That is it I will get another alignment done and see what happens.
