The issue after sitting 3 weeks sounds strange and maybe the engine lost compression due to gasoline wash down and loss of compression? That happens on many different car brands nowadays due to low friction/low tension piston rings. I have so far seen it personally on Volvo's, a Jaguar, BMW and Chrysler.
So you might have some compression/ring issues as well.
If the battery died that fast as you say, it is toast and maybe both battery cables are bad as well not allowing the alternator to fully charge the battery.
Many cars use bushings for drive shaft diff and the right is only supported due to the intermediate shaft bearing which stiffens up that side.
Front suspension has been bad since the introduction of the NG900 and they never got it real good but at least improved it somewhat in the last years of the OG9-3
