comment My stem keeps moving side to side even thought I tighten it
Make a small mark on the steerer tube when the stem is aligned. The next time the stem moves verify the stem is moving in relation to steerer. It is possible that the steerer is moving in the fork crown.

comment Deepening the front fork dropout
If the above comments aren't enough the likely hood of you modifying both sides identical are slim. The result would be a wheel with a positive camber or tilt that will affect handling.

comment Roof Rack vs. Trunk Rack for Sedan
Roof rack con: If you drive into the garage with the bike on the roof you'll need a new door and a new bike. I never realized how often this happens until I saw the "Bike on Board" signs for your dashboard.
