comment Crank arm snapped: what could have caused it?
If it is an older model check for a recall, Shimano, Trek, Mongoose recalled thousands of cranks. I believe they were from the late 90's. A friend had his replaced about five years ago at no cost.

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.

The head of the tool slides over the nipple and the recessed screwdriver tip engages the nipple slot.

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.
