4 wheel alignment with front only lowering springs

$91.00 and the end results is

I'm still in the red zone.

Prior to the alignment, I had inner tire wear.

I'm assuming from t the chart below I'm going to continue having tire wear.

Before and After alignment snap shot.

What springs? I would take it back and have them fix it unless it is out of adjustment on the LCA. Look under the car and look where the bolts are in the slots on the K member.

Way too much toe in on your before, that is where the majority of your inner wear comes from, you will never get your camber right and even stock it’s quite negative.

Toe in is a tire killer.

Stock suspension settings will still wear inner tire. Just the way it is.

I'd squeeze more life out of those tires by just flipping them inside out since they're symmetrical thread.

As larry arizona said, all of that tire wear came from the toe setting. The camber being out should be expected, and isn't a problem whatsoever.
