wobble..........

Sounds like you have play in the steering box,or,its worn out. on the top of the box,you will find a nut,holding a stud with a screwdriver slot,(usually) loosen nut,using a screw driver turn stud in (clockwise) about 1/4 turn,tighten nut,check for steering wheel play,still loose? do the adjustment again,only 1/4 turn at a time though.keep going,unless the box is worn out,this SHOULD fix the problem...BUT,it could also be worn out suspension components..(bad ball joints,or tie rods.) have a friend move steering wheel (rock it)while you look at the front end parts.do this,BEFORE adjusting steering box..
