Loose rear castle nut

make sure all the washers are there, there is a cone washer first, then a flat washer. if these are missing there is the cause of your problem
if you indeend do have to replace the wheel bearing, there is a special socket required to access the inner bearing
the rear bearing on the outside is cone shaped, and the torque of the nut is what holds it all together. so a loose nut will let it wobble a bit. if its tight it should not wobble

the spacer, when you pack the bearings with grease pack in the space around the outside fo he spacer as well
if the the axle stub can be driven out in the same fashion as a front cv spindle, once you remvoe the rear axle first. there are roll pins on both sides of one axle, drop the diff from the rear hanger and move it sideways to take out he axle

If I was frustrated with a pile of parts, this would help me, get them all assembled correctly.
Is there a torque specification on the castle nut?
