Cool Polaris ranger help

So let me break this down. I have a 2019 1000 xp Northstar Edition. I noticed a while back that the inside of the drivers side front tire was wearing pretty bad. I noticed the toe was way off so I set the toe to as straight as I possibly could and it did not help much. I dug a little deeper and found that the same tire is leaning in at the top maybe 1/4 inch from square, the passenger side is leaning out at the top maybe 1/8 of an inch. There is no excessive noise/clunks/ rattles or squeaking.

Here is what I have done so far to try and find out why.

Jacked the front end up and checked the wheel bearings with the 12 and 6 shake as well as the 9 and 3.

Put a pry bar under each tire and listen for loose/worn parts making noise.

Pulled the front tires and took the shock loose and pushed the upper and lower A Arms in every direction.

Pre loaded the shocks.

rotated the front tires and checked square again ( they did the identical lean as before )

Checked tie rod ends.

Visually inspected the A Arms to be bent ( upper and lower )

Inspected the axels by rotating the hub and looking for a bend or bow.

None of the above revealed any kind of loose or worn part.

I know Polaris is known for the tires to lean in a little from the way they are designed and that there is no camber adjustment on a stock model. I am at a dead end trying to find the problem. Anyone have the same issue/s
