Agree there. It's a simple enough task... But it is a bit tricky...

Good stuff. We'll send pictures of where to wield the spanners...

Having read the issue regarding the wobble, I suspect a dry CV joint, which needs repacking with grease.

Hi Dieselman, this is Liz...I do not want to sound very stupid, but what is a cv joint?

The CV (constant velocity) joint is the swiveling driveshaft joint that allows the front wheels to turn to allow steering, meanwhile still transmitting rotational drive at a Constant Velocity.
They do eventually wear out, but also suffer from the grease drying out and causing tight spots so drive is no longer provided at a constant velocity, hence causes wheel wobble on turns.
Another item to check is if the parking brake might be binding on one side, or the cable is being pulled when the steering is turned. This causes the brake pads to bind on the disk at certain points, giving uneven rotation.
