I would think a bent axle would show when rolling an empty skate across a table, a pivot pin to long or short and loose should show up when flexing the trucks around, and a wheel with unmatched bearing races would show when spinning the wheel.

This photo shows a jump bar, just ignore it, it also shows the bolt and cushion cups, I wonder if one of the bolts adjusting kingpin tightness is loose, or if the pivot pin is loose you will feel it when grabbing the hanger and playing with it, this isn't rocket science and with a little discussion the wobble will begone.
Switch the truck to the other skate or the rear, and it does sound like a bent axle
