I have a 2016 SRT lowered with Eibach pro springs, the car has less than 4000 miles on it and the rear tires have excessive wear on the outside edges.

Can this be easily corrected with an alignment or are offset bushes etc. required?

You should have an alignment done. It might or might not solve it, but it will let you what if any corrective action is needed.

Was it aligned when you lowered it? If so, was alignment within specs? The big question is whether it aligns without other parts (mine did)

It should have been re-aligned after lowering it. I bet this is the problem.

My 2011 Challenger R/T Classic was lowered on Mopar Stage 1 springs and wore through a set of tires even though it was almost-not-quite-on-the-edge-of-nearly-being-in-spec. Lots of people seem to think that's "close enough."

I eventually changed to Eibach front control arms and Eibach rear camber bushings to solve the alignment issues and drastically improved the ride quality.

I lowered it myself and took a gamble on not getting the alignment checked... and lost.
I will get it checked and go from there, thanks for the replies.

Seems like most of us who’ve done the Eibach Pro Kit have found that getting back to within alignment specs requires additional parts (control arms, camber bushings etc).

Wait....the outside edge is worn? Or the inside edges?

Outside wear would indicate positive camber....which is the exact opposite of what is supposed to happen naturally when lowering...
