Sounds like the steering box is worn and needs adjustment, or replacement if the wear is bad enough. Glad to see you young guns taking on an old project. It's gonna be a nice ride when your done.

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.. :welcome:
