So far all the parts are looking pretty good:https://imgur.com/HcnEyJvhttps://imgur.com/fGYznDghttps://imgur.com/XBQR8WI
However, by damage I see in both the socket ball (https://imgur.com/iB4aK56
) and wheel hub (https://imgur.com/UelgJq7
), at some point something let loose. So wondering if these parts look good because they are newer replacement parts in comparison to the other wheels. The steering u-joint is rock solid, no play at all.
One more step to get the steering housing off (https://imgur.com/AVMGQwa

In the mean time trying to figure out all the seals I need, I may as well replace all the seals on both axles. All in all, still not sure where all the backlash is coming from...
