I can't figure my Axel's or tires out

So here I am in Louisiana after my last trip 780 miles I notices one of my tires deflating so I stopped to add more air, as I check all the way around I noticed that one of my tires was coming separated at the wall and thread. So I look at my spare and it was a Goodyear marathon so I said no, I'm not adding this to our RW cause for the ones that know me this was the cause of the problem to begin with. So I called the Good Sam road side assistance and the got me a new 10ply tire for $410.
Here comes my question! So with my tires on, I used a straight edge and measured to the frame I was about 1/2 " off so I figured ok that's my problem spindle bend. But when the took the tire off I used same straight edge directly to the hub and I was under 1/8" witch is normal.
What would be the best or better suspension upgrade for me ? Anyone here having problems with 7k axel ? I don't think the 8k upgrade would make a difference. This tire wear also this is only happening on my front axel I posted a picture of my shackles few days back and the seem to never ride flat the front is always sitting pushed back.

Most likely when you put the straight edge on the tires one was bit stressed so you won't get a good measurement. Did the tire separate or was it wearing wrong??

Titan Guy just installed the 8K axels so we are all waiting for his feedback.

If your going to travel a lot Moryde IS is probably the only way to go. We were planning on upgrading but plans have changed a little and will be staying longer in SC so not as many miles each year so will put off spending the $ for now.

Well with the tire expansion you are 100 percent right. On wearing I have to say the inside of the tire was uneven at least 1/4 of the tire lifespan. (This is on passenger side ) on drivers side same axel the middle of the tire is starting to show some wear. I drove 4400 miles on the tires with no problems this started on my last trip. I did have my RW shipped at some point and the driver said it was tracking not 100 % sure what he meant.

Have you checked your u bolts if the trailer is dog tracking usually loose u bolts or the center pin that holds the spring pack centered on the axle has broken and shifted. Is your trailer riding level. If not you can see different tire whear between the tires on each axle

Both my axles were severely out of alignment wore the right front considerably in 5-6k miles, had aligned under warranty & they replaced the worn tire. Might want to have that checked also.

Took it to tire place, and the said you couldn't align this type of axel because of that center pin that sits between the U bolts

You need to visit a large truck alignment shop. I had my Redwood and Montanas done a few times.

Interesting. I wonder why they said the pin was an issue, as that is pretty normal.
