You old axle looks great that still does not rule out the other end may be worn were they butt together....

Short of a shim job of some kind I am gonna say the axles are going to have to come out to determine why one axle is in/out farther than the other...

To many are no shims on either could cause your issue tho I have never seen it but I keep it in mind so only use one shim (as a gasket )tween the backing plate and the axle housing then do the rest of the shimming tween the bearing retainer (both sides) and the backing plate...

If one were to do all their shim'n on one side its possible to have one short side and one long side...

Before I started I would want to know what the axle end play is...


So what I may do,,, check the shims on the bad side its coming apart anyways,,, then check the other,,, if I determine the axle length is OK and to many shims on the other side use 2 are know shims on the other side this will push the axle farther out the bad side and shim/set up the bearing pre-load their...

The optimal BRG pre-load would be dead nutz zero BUT 1 to 10 tho is acceptable,,, on assembly I shoot for .004 to .010,,, then when I nail it all down its usually .001 to .003 I am very happy :D

Your options shim the hub as is are take it apart....
