Tires wearing funny at 5900 mi.

Just made an appt to bring in my truck to the dealership. Every other tread on the outside of my front two tires is starting to become staggered (one higher than the other). What could be causing this?

Shocks can do this if they are going bad.

Sounds to be out of alignment. Ford's biggest problem was their ball joints. They are non greasing. I haven't went through any in 27k doing a lot of towing, but it is possible at lower mileage. Do you use a snow plow?

lol negative on a snow plow. I'm in south georgia... When I made the appointment with the dealer the guy mentioned it could be alignment but said that their alignment machine was down and they could take it somewhere else in town to check the alignment.
