Cupped tires

My rear tires are cupped (both the dealer service dept told me as well as a tire dealer I used to replace my front tires). I also know it is from the trail arms needing replaced as they also told me that.

My question is, do I have to replace the tires? The rear tires are newish (15K miles or so) Yokohamas. Good tires with a lot of good tread left and it would be a shame to have to replace them so soon. Once the suspension is fixed, and with tire rotation, would the wear eventually equalize or is replacing the tires the only thing that can be done? That is what the tire dealer is telling me, but of course, they want to sell me another set of tires.
