truck wobble need help

ok i noticed my truck was feeling loose when driving first let me explain everything that is new then i will go to problem ok upgraded hubs to dynatrac free spin all new both hubs are working great new tie rod ends both sides and i replaced u joints and cv yoke bearing as well so only other thing i could think of was ring and pinion so i have noticed that i can turn pinion on truck about 3/8 to 1/2 left or right but no up or down or side to side play so my question is does it sound like i need new pinion bearings? or just need to be re sheamed? i talked to a guy today about it and he said i would have to get new ring and pinion and full install kit but i dont see why i just did a lube job on rear diff and ring and pinion look fine and spider gears look fine.

so anyone got a clue?

oh almost forgot to mention that when i stop at a stop sign or something to that affect when i give her the pedal it feels like it takes a sec or 2 for truck to go.

Is the trac bar loose? Wouldn't hurt to check it. Death wobble is mainly caused by trac bars.
