Got her to a 4x4 shop and aligned 100%..and the rear outter wheel bearing decided to take a vacation..

Groan ..

UPDATE

Well I got the van back together finally without breaking another axle nut..I had to order two more right side right handed threaded spindle nuts. The spare when I had cracked when I went to put on I did some work on it cut the threads. Then I broke the new one when I got it almost all the way down so I file ground used hammers to make the spindle round again and then cut the threads with my multi-tool. So it was down for almost a week..

and on a whim checked the other side..

It was LOOSE!!

got them all tightened to spec and it's night and day difference!!

Still gotta put that steering stabilizer on and maybe some rear spacers for track width but it's drivable without the weird butt wiggle!

Stabilizer I have isn't right...so I measured the axle width on a whim...2005 10.5 Sterling rear end in 1in narrower wms to the front..

I know my old setup was much improved by the 2in spacers making the track width wider...so I ordered some 1.5 spacers to get her 2in wider in the rear than the front overall. I think that will take care of the but of wander I have left!!
