Nah never did change it probably will very soon but up until now i didnt see it as a necessity. Guess the only way to find out if its the source is to change it out and see what happens

Anything loose in the front suspension or steering mechanisms will allow it to develop a wobble like that ... once worn, those parts just get worse at an accelerating rate. It's not really hurting anything to drive it like that (except that every time it does the 'wobble" it also puts undue stress on all the other components which will cause THEM to wear out sooner as well) ... but eventually loose components will cause enough wear on bolts and holes that you end up having to replace more and larger parts than if you had just replaced the original worn component in a more timely manner.

do a search to confirm values.
