Abnormal front tire wear

Ok, as you can see I have a 2wd dually. The front tires wear excessively on the outside edges about 1.5" toward the inside. It's bad enough that the steel cord is shining thru when the rest of the tire has almost new tread. It seems to happen on the right more than the left. I assume the camber is off by a ton. What do you guys recommend as a starting point?

185000 miles. Drag link bushings look ok. Ball joints and pivot points look good too.

Now when you jack it up, everything feel tight!

My guess would be ball joints need to be replaced or the drag link, One cant simply look at them and say they look ok. Need to find out if there is play when you check it left to right and up and down

Never considered wheel bearings. Steer ability is ok and no pulling.
