Bad bushings?

Hey guys this is my first time posting on here and I need some great advice on my 2010 cobalt. So I was doing my brakes the other day and realize half of my front tires were bald. I just figured I needed some new tires cause it's been a while but after doing some research I learned it can also be from bad bushings or an alignment. I'm not sure if it's the bushings cause I haven't heard any clunking noise like I read online. Does anyone might know what it might be? Thank you for taking time to read this and any advice will be greatly appreciated!

I would definitely first take it to an alignment shop first if you can't see any obvious defects in the bushings. Sounds like you have too much camber either positive or negative.

Showoff thread finally!!!! : )

Yeah it ended up being the camber. Thanks everybody! You guys think it's something I can do myself or should I take it to a shop?

If you can do an alignment... most people can not. take it to shop and get it aligned.
