I've got word from the Brand, they are showing the manufacture the vid of the .150" runnout and are seeking a solution. I think it's a problem that not many, if any, have noticed after installation... it can cause a vibration and prolly throw u-joints prematurely besides dammaging outer axle seals.
it has been said, by the Brand, that .045" runnout is ok.... the stock ones have .003", hmmm...
but the seals won't last long, IMO if theres that much runnout I'd consider the shaft bent. which is how I found the problem in the first place, I though I bent them, untill the new replacements came which were worse.

x2...what brand am I making sure not to buy? it's got to be either USA Alloy or Superior
Well for starters, this is not an issue that's been prevalent in the past, nor will it be in the future. Something has changed at the manufacturing end and when the "brand" figures out what, the issue will be remedied to everyone's satisfaction.
To alienate yourself from a particular brand over what hasn't been an issue and won't be an issue is sorta silly if said brand is well known for resolving issues to the best of their ability and in the customer's best interests.
It's just unfortunate that it's happening this many times in a row. But, trust me, they are on top of it and are in fact scheduled to make an engineering stop tomorrow before a meeting with the manufacturer to determine the best solution.
