Excellent photo-analysis Litewait! Something is definitely a bit dodgy with the trailing arm set-up, and as noted, this may have been "fixed" when it was welded up, not an assembly error on 'Fahrer's part I wouldn't think? I'd jack that wheel off the ground, grab it across the diameter, and give it a hefty push/pull to make sure that bearings are (relatively) tight. If the wheel hub is secure, then I would also guess it's safe, but may cause some abnormal tire wear, and the only "fix" would be to suffer the down-time to have it checked out at Dauntless as Elmer and Sharon swing through the Great NorthWET. It would take some time to do it right, welding probably, then powder-coating, unless a quick rattle can spray job is good enough until they're home for service and maintenance.
