Toro 924 Powershift bucket wobble

I've done some searching but I am coming up empty.

While clearing snow this morning I noticed that my bucket kept wobbling or shimmying back and forth when getting into deeper snow (8'' or so).

I have the scraper bar set about 1/16'' or so off the ground, the auger is set about 1/8'' to 3/16'' off the ground.

What are some causes that I should be looking into here?

toro's are famous for a inner impeller and side auger bearing's going dry, also on a power shift the leg bushings like to seize to the axle shaft and spin in the legs, that could be part of your issue which to me sounds like a possibly bent auger
i when servicing a power shift would remove the allen head bolt that keeps the egg bearing from spinning out, drill though and install a zerk to replace the allen, this allows one to grease the auger and impeller while still having a pin to hold the egg bearing in place and keep from spinning in the holder.
with the legs when they spin in the leg one can reinstall them drill for a zerk though the leg and bushing. the zerks i found were long enough to help hold the bushing back in place on one side a small sheet metal screw partly into the bushing on the other side .
old power shifts are work horses unlike the toro's of today

Check the mounting bolts between the bucket and the tractor unit for loose\missing bolts or cracked welds.

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.
