His DW comes from a worn out ball joint at the frame end. You can physically see it move.

Yeah the joint moves when turning. And I tried tightening the trackbar tighter but it was maxed out.

It was a first for me too. I have seen the axle side fail numerous times but this was the first time for the frame side.

My famous last words before I drove home from the grocery store and the motor blew, "it's got 170,000 miles and still runs like a dream". Less then a mile later a wrist pin lets go and destroys the block.
