Unusual for them to wear on the outer edge, it very common for them to wear on the inner edge due to the X5 running a large negative camber on the rear axle to aid in handling.
Loads of old posts on inner edge wear.
Shouldn't think you would have much suspension wear at 17k

Think an alignment check is in order
Choose your place wisely, ideally a hunter machine for 4 wheel geometry
I’ve tried numerous places locally and whilst the machines are great the user is often......
As such it’s one of few jobs I let the dealer do!
