Rear Tire Wobble

I need a 2nd opinion.... I am sure once I tear it apart I will figure it out but it is on my mind...

I jacked up the rear end and the drivers side rear wheel has a bad wobble. I removed the tire and the axle nut is tight as hell. The silver hub (not sure what to call it) that the tire mounts to wobbles. It looks to me like the splines maybe worn out. The Gorilla axle is fairly new.... Maybe 6 months old. Could the silver hub be worn out? Any other thoughts....

ALso what the hell do you call the silve hub?

hub splines or rear bearings in the upright, you have a lot of miles so both could be worn.
