So I've never had any luck getting my car aligned so I need some help I have all new everything and everything had settled in but I have had my front tires wear out in 8k miles and according to the paperwork from the Shelby drop kit my specs should be

Camber -2 to -3
Caster +2 to +4
Toe 0-1/16 out

Are those specs good? My tires wear heavy on the inside on both

Those look like typical specs for a high performance front end alignment.
I think that the problem is, you aren't driving the car hard enough... Because if you were, you would be wearing out the entire tire evenly at 8k miles, instead of just the inside.
This is one of the perils of having a staggered tire/wheel setup, you can't rotate the tires!

You can try cutting the camber in half, and see if that helps with the tire wear. You may notice a slight decrease in cornering performance though. Everything is a compromise when it comes to modifying vehicles.
