SOURCE: I have a 1997 GMC Sierra.
Align the truck, sound like the camber is out of adjustment the upper control arm is holding it out too much, or your lower ball joint is messed up and lets it tuck in. The tie rods on that truck have nothing to do with it. Ball joints are like 40 bucks each for a good one, and an alignment is like 50. Is this a 4wd truck? If you have torsion bars make sure they are not too tight, when you hit dips its gonna distort the tire to the ground.

First of all, the biggest problem I see is taking a vehicle to a dealership that no longer has a factory warranty! Can you say PRICE RAPED? Dealerships never do what you ask of them because of turn over. The more cars they get done in a day the more they make. So, if you tell them to rotate tires, and they don't want to spend the time...they won't. Second, if you are wearing tires on the OUTSIDE edges or your tires, that is usually a sign of UNDER-inflation. I have had the same Bridgestone Dueler AT's for 6 years because I ran them at 40 p.s.i. instead of the factory reccomended 35p.s.i. This pushes the center of the tire out, forcing it to wear more evenly. I would ask friends and family if they have or know of an independent mechanic that they trust and know. Usually these guys actually know more than a dealership because they are not working on just one Brand of car or truck. Also, they will make you aware of engineering and manufacturer problems that dealership don't want you to now about until waranty is over. I.E. My catalytic converters on my '97 Explorer. I found out that they were having problems with thr driver side front one plugging prematurely. Well, if you got a code BEFORE 80,000 miles they would warranty it out. Parts and labor! But, 80,001 and up, you were on your own. But there was no letters sent or notices. I even asked the Service people at my local dealership and they claimed to know nothing about it. If the problem is fixed with hubs I would be surpised. Could be wheel bearings, also have ALL of your wheels rebalanced at the tire store you purchased them from and let them know about your problems. Sometimes place that deal with tires, alignments etc. have more experience trouble shooting these types of probblems.
Hope this helped,
