    I my self installed a 3" susp. Lift on my truck about 2 months ago, now the two front tires are wearing on the outside. Is it an alignment Issue or did I install it wrong?

    you need an alignment after a lift. if you didn't get one, you need to do that.

    when you lift, you naturally camber in. this means that the outsides of the tire bear more weight than the insides -- thus wearing it out more.
