Default Front end rebuild

my truck is wearing the inside of both of my front tires and there is moderate play in my steering wheel. what would i have to fix/replace to correct this problem. im on a limited budget but i want to do it right so my front end isn't all screwed up and eating up my tires.

That depends on what's bad. Steering wheel play comes from the gearbox, steering shaft, faulty steering/suspension components or any combination thereof. The unusual tire wear can be from the steering/suspension components or excessive toe out or negative camber in the alignment. The best thing to do is get someone knowledgable in these areas to inspect the front end and then decide on a course of action.
