Alignmemt

I had my car aligned back in maybe september. Maybe a month or two ago I notice when I back up my passenger front tire makes a screech sound and recently it makes that sound sometimes in either direction to about 25mph. I checked my tires and both have inside tire wear, the passenger is the worse by far.

I checked and pulled on everything with the car up and didn't notice anything.

I'm thinking maybe the ball bearing? Tie Rodso look fine to btw.

Toe is the cause of most excessive wear but you said the tie rods are fine. It could just be out of spec again.

My lower ball joints went around 155k. They had noticeable play up/down and made grinding noises when I turned.

Both upper ball joints went out.. Luckily I have a garage, compressor, and a press. It'll take a little time to replace as I think the spring/shock needs to be moved away.

Honestly while they're out, do the whole front bushing segments. New LCAs are about 100 for a pair on rockauto, front lower and upper ball joints can be had for about 150 combined, ish.
I know mevotech makes some good uppers that allow a bit of adjustment, and I had been looking at some proforged lower, well accepted as very good ball joints, 1million mile warranty.

Oh and the LCA lower bushings can be polyfilled before install for increased life.

I lowered my car on Tein Street Advanced Dampening Coilovers and once its been lowered, my car have been shaking/vibrating around 20mph then stops and become normal after that. Any ideas why?

Like it shakes hard enough to make the passenger seat shake. Not really jumpy. My alignment is really bad tho so that may be that case. Im just waiting to get my tires mounted so i can finally get an alignment.
