Alignment help please

As you can see by my signature my truck has a 8" Fabtech lift. Both of my front tires are wearing really bad from the center out. They are fine from the center in. I believe this is called "Toe-out". I have been under the truck several times and the only thing that I can find with any adjustment to it is the control arms. I have read the diy on anlignment and plan on taking it to a professional as soon as I can. The nearest place is an hour and 45 minutes away, which sucks with my work schedule. I was wanting to get it close just to help out the tires untill I can. I can't afford $800 dollars for two new tires right now. I'll try to get some pictures to help after work, because I am on graveyards right now.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If you are only wearing the outside of your tires then it is probably a camber problem. Toe in or out will cause a feathering effect across the enter tread. There isn't really anything to do for camber except put a heavy load in your truck to make the front squat.
