Death wobble on on right turns?

So ive got death wobble but only on right turns, i had it aligned today. I started noticing it after i disassembled the drivers side suspension (to replace the dam motor mount) i completely took it apart, took the tie rod out of the knuckle, took out the coil spring....everything. And once i put it all back together i started noticing it. Any ideas?
It doesnt make sense to me that if we took apart the drivers side suspension why it would wobble on only right turns.

Is your rotor also your hub? Meaning are the wheel studs built into the rotor?

If so, did you put the cotter pin back in after putting the nut back on the spindle? If not the bearing could be moving out far enough to cause this.

Just an idea.
