Front End Alignment/New Tires

Hey Everyone,
New here, but have had my 02 Avalanche for about three years. Recently (January) had the front end aligned by an independent garage. They aligned to K14 specs (?) and within a couple of months the vibration was back and I notice wear on the front left side. Took it to my local dealer, they aligned it and the report I got back was a C14 spec sheet. I have a Z71, which is correct??

Plus, I know I've always heard it, but do I really have to replace all four tires at once? Kinda pricey!!
welcome to the club Redman68
it's a good idea to replace them all at once, especially if they have a lot of mileage on them 
:welcome: to the site Redman68. I agree with wildfire about replacing all 4 at once. Maybe check out your local salvage yard for some used tires, not the best but may be better than what you have and at a substantial savings compared to new. Good luck and keep us posted.
