Definately going to have this done, sooner rather than later.

you have a thrust angle on the rear axle, which means you must have the car always aligned on x4 wheel laser ramps to correct else you will have a wonky steering wheel.

Good spot, the wheel is drooping noticably to the right currently.

you shouldnt have to replace tyres every 5-8k, many other manufacturers and models can do up to 30k miles on one set !!!

on my old lag1 i did around 30k miles on one set of tyres 2003-2005.
The old Girl is not too bad on overall tyre wear, I rotate them at about 15k and that way manage to squeeze 20 -22k out of a single pair.

Cheers and Happy Christmas to All
