Drum brake wobble, not axle...?

Hey all, hoping for some help as I'm a bit stumped.

The driver's rear drum brake is wobbling in/out and contacting the shoes & backing plate.

This started after replacing the rear brakes including drums. I re-installed the factory original drum and the issue goes away which to me rules out the axle being bent.

The thing is, I've tried 3 more drums from Advance & Autozone and all of them are wobbling as well...

What's going on here?

To my eye, it appears the OEM drum fits further onto the axle flange and it feels tighter.

Just some more info:

The aftermarket Alloy Shaft in the D35 has a larger OD flange since it has 2 bolt patterns on it.

I'm eyeballing it a bit, but it appears the Chinese drums are hitting the flange where the OE drum has a slightly (< 1/8") larger diameter.

Not real sure how to fix this beyond buying MOPAR drums...
