    In my 67 Gtx 8.750 rear diff , is it common to have at least one shaft (passenger side) to have an original axle shaft bent to cause axle and wheel wobble ?

    No. They shouldn't be bent. It's probably a wheel.

      Sometimes someone hotdogging can spin out and get up against a curb but that generally bends a wheel...and it doesn't take all that much to do it but when an axle gets bent, it's usually because of a crash.

          Have you had the axle out and can see that it's actually bent?
          Somebody correct me but doesn't the right side of an 8 3/4 have an end play adjuster? Have you checked that? It should be around .010 as I remember.
          Also have you checked the wheel bearing?

            Swap wheels side to side and recheck. Mark the wheels L & R first so you dont loose track of them.

            what kind of wheels? thick flange With shouldered lug nuts or unilugs can mount up wrong and wobble.
