Steer Safe parts

I have a 94 Pace arrow with steer safe and believe the bushings need replaced along with the 2 front tires (now). Took a 14 day Colorado trip last summer and tires looked/felt fine. Was outside and noticed the sway bar bushings were bad so I replaced them and noticed the front tires are worn on in&out sides not the centers. Steer safe bushings look rough. Can I replace these myself? Where do I get parts and should I have an alignment done after replacing? Thanks
Ron

Ron, Are we talking about a Steer Safe or a Safety Plus. I am hard pressed to see bushings on the Steer Safe.

The Steer Safe is attached to the end of the axle is is comprised of 2 centering springs each. The Safe-T-Plus looks like a big shock absorber and it does have bushings.

They are blue and have a big shock absorber. There 2 blue butterfly looking things mounted to the right and left side under the front and a big shock Must be safe T Plus. It's snow again so I will get under it and take a picture later.
Thanks

Tires worn on inside and outside edges are USUALLY an indication of under inflation. Center wear indicates over inflation. Under inflated tires will give a smoother ride but will wear out sooner due to excessive flexing of the sidewalls and heat.
