    Yikes. Down to the cords. Good thing you caught that early!

    What are your alignment specs? You have quite a lot of significant inner wear, which would indicate to me either 1.) Very aggressive (autocross-level) camber or 2.) some serious toe-in.

    With those on there it's pointless to align again. Get new stuff, fit it, and then realign.

    I doubt it. The dampers may need replacement but the springs usually hold on longer. Is the car sagging or bouncing?

    From the wear pattern, it really looks as though your toe is far out of spec.

    OK see if you have a faulty strut cartridge (damper). Figure that out before you align since you'll need to align if you replace those anyway.
