    One of your differentials is up side down.

    Nope, they fit upside down too. That is the reason the differential cases read "↑ UP REVO."

    Is there someone you can enlist to help with the re-build?

    Switch tires. If the same tire on a different axle wobbles but a tire on the original axle doesn't, then you likely have water or sand/debris in your tire. Do your tires – not wheels – I have holes in them to let air and water escape? Do you run through water at all?

    What rockers are you running?

    You cannot run LT rockers with the CVDs.
    You should order the extended drive cups for them, they help A LOT.
    Also, do not run your push rods in the outermost holes, especially if you have RPM a arms (no idea if you do or not). Middle holes are perfectly fine.

    I have RPM arms, which flex a lot which makes it easier for them to fall out. But I run my pushrods in the middle holes and the extended drive cups, and with that setup I have NEVER had one fall out. And I bash the truck extremely hard.
    Using while stupid may cause serious injury.
