All the vehicles I have seen the shafts are different lengths so if you did get it to fit it would have premature failure or breakage.

Jack up the front end so both wheels are off the ground and grab the tires and figure out where the wobble is coming from.

maybe it is the tire/wheel, swap with one from the back, did you do both Tie-rod ends as in inner and outer, or just both the outer ?

I just noticed you have multiple threads going about the same topic. It'* best practice to not do this because it will just create confusion between the multiple threads/replies. Thank you. Thread closed.
