First that pops into my mind is shocks and sway bars. Here is a simple test push down hard on the fender and let it go if it comes straight up and stops then shocks my be good if it bounces a few time then the shocks are bad.

How bad is the wobble? Is it to the point that you have to slow down considerably or stop to get it to quit shaking?

Don't bother looking at shocks and swaybars. Take a look at the steering and most importantly the track bar. Turn the key to the first position and have someone turn the wheel back and forth while you look for any play in the components. There should be no play at all in the axle or frame end of the track bar.

It's called death wobble.
Most common causes are worn out track bars and storm out control arm bushings. Being a 93, expect to replace most of the suspension bushings in the near future, now that things are bad enough to give you death wobble.
