front wheels wobbling

After replacing the front diff on my truck, the front wheels wobble, you can actually see it! I have remounted the wheels, did not help.

I think it might be the alignment, being that the old diff split in half, that might have bent something, but I did not see anything.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Sounds like either the alignment or possibly the ball joints. It's probably the alignment (unless something is bent ~ half shafts?). Did you try to drive the truck after the front end came apart, before repairing it? If both tires are wobbling, I wouldn't think that it's due to bad CV joints.

I drove about 40 miles home. So I'm sure there was some stress involved on everything.
