Hi, my 95 k1500 is wearing the outside tread very prematurely only on the front driver side. So I cant remember the causes , can anyone give me items to look at for factors ?

Just the outside tread without feathering...positive camber. If wear and feathering I'd guess at toe in. Any other ride/drive symptoms? Sounds like an alignment is in your future?

Causes.....alignment out of whack




Seriously though, for camber I'd look at ball-joints. Hard to imagine there aren't any other symptoms besides just tire wear.

Drivers side tire only is usually camber.

See if you have slop in your control arm bushings.
