Agreed, driving straight as an arrow doesn't help you very much in identifying the problem.
You have wear on the outside of the tire - not even wear like GM mentioned. You have an alignment issue which could be caused by a broken/bent part, or just improper alignment.

Well I have ruled out the bad alignment. It drives as straight as an arrow; I live in TX so we have long straight roads. Well I can let go of the wheel and it won't start out of the lane until I move it or there is a corner.
If I'm going to have to replace parts within suspension wouldn't it be a good idea to replace the whole thing?

Fast wearing even tread is more the result of a soft tread compound, which tires do you have?
Since it sounds like your tires are also wearing unevenly on the outside like stated possibly a suspension problem or so imply just a alignment issue. To much toe in as well as the wrong camber can cause this.
Or like stated it could be worn suspension compoents

When I purchased the car 3 years ago, my mechanic made mention that the rack-n-pinion(sp) may need to be replaced in the future but it wasn't an issue at the time. Could it be this? Furthermore, recently had alignment done and put new tires on it 3 days after; went back got it realigned with new and still the same thing.
I have found suspension kits on eeuroparts for a decent price. Is it hard to replace by yourself?
Your help is much obliged

Tire Tread Wearing Unusually Fast
My Saab friends,
Tread on new front tires wears extremely fast on my 06 9-3 2.0T, especially on the outside of the tire. Traction control error code is on but I'm not sure it would cause it to happen in the manner and rate of which it is. Any ideas? Thanks
