Trigger only one side of the array each time - IMO.
Both disks passed the extended (long) test (whew!), so that narrows down
the problem to the cabling, or maybe the controller card.

Well, not necessarily.

If it was a read error, rebuilding the error may have rewritten the
sector, and that might have caused it to be remapped to one of the
spares; so the error may now be "gone".

Cabling errors may be flukes though, maybe you pressed the connector in
better now ;-)
