are you dropped? i'm dropped 3 inches, and I don't have a camber kit in the front... I'm not getting bad wear on my tires. I just got rear camber arms, cause I was advised to. You shouldn't really need the ball joints, but that would fix the issue. You still wanna run some negative camber though, cause that looks hott. If you're gonna get the camber kit, get Ingalls, not just any ebay brand.

Yes and no
The alignment will fix the wear but what you are seeing is a combination of toe and camber. Toe causes the wear camber causes where the wear is located. The guys at the tire shop will tell you its camber so they can do more work on your car. However, i know people running -3 degrees of camber all year long with no problems. Its all your toe that you need to worry about.

Let me back step a sec.

If you are running bf goodrich Traction T/A or a similar tire you may see faster wear on the sides of the wheel because they use a synthetic rubber shoulder so they have better traction but they wear faster on the outside.
