Exclamation need some help. front tires wearin funny

hey guys, im not sure if this is the right place but im gonna give it a try,
ive got a 1998 Ram 2500 4x4 with a 3 inch coil spacer in the front. im runnin 315/75/R16 Mastercraft Courser A/T tires. ive had em for about 22,000 miles and theyve done good till now.

i just had the front end aligned and the tires rotated about 3200 miles ago and now ive noticed that the outside tread block is shavin off toward the back and on the inside tread block, its cuttin one deeper than skippin 2 or 3 and cuttin deeper than the rest.. im gettin pretty annoyed cause i cant figure this out.

if theres anybody out there that can help me out on this subject it would be greatly appreciated..
