Just needs an alignment, don't even need a camber kit for 1 inch, just a regular alignment

Has to be the alignment. I have Hotchkis without camber links and my tires are still in great shape! I bet the shop that installed the springs for you never did a wheel alignment after they were done. What's eating away your tires is probably the toe setting, not so much the camber.

For the first week after the dealership installed my TRD struts and springs my back tires where kinda / \ as well, then I had it re-aligned and now they are fine.

I don't know; maybe the new suspension compents need a few miles of driving to settle?

Naw, nothing special just took it down to Les Schwab (local tire store franchise) and asked them to do an alignment.

I explained to the tech about the springs and struts I just had installed and my concerns about the camber being out.

I asked him If he thought I would need a Hotchkins camber kit, he said no, that although my camber was slightly out it was well within adjustment capabilities of the stock suspension of my car because it was only a 1 to 1.5 inch drop.
