Default 2002 SL1 Wobble Half Shaft

Dear All:

After changing my clutch and quill seal, I end up getting a wobble at high speeds (higher than 30mph).

I think either my differential is the problem or the driver side half shaft is not installed right. I shot a video (""). In this video, I locked my driver side rotor with a screw driver and put the car in the 3rd gear. The passenger side tire rotates freely and the driver side half shaft clearly wobbles. If i did the same test for the other side there is no wobble in the passenger side half shaft link.

I know the differential bearings are good (I have checked during quil seal installation). I cannot imagine how a bearing cannot be in its housing if the housing closed fine. I think the half shaft might not pushed in all the way ( but the half shaft looks all right (no visible misalignment)

May I hear your ideas about the problem?

Thank you in advance.
