Hi there. From the description you have given, your vehicle's front end wobble should be diagnosed and repaired before, something breaks. Your safety is priority one. Assuming, whether it is 2wd or 4wd, it could be worn ball joints. It could be, tire tread separation. It could be, a bad shock absorber. It could be, worn steering linkage. It could be (4wd), worn track-bar bushings. With all of the possibilities, your vehicle needs to be properly diagnosed. I recommend your vehicle's front tire goes into the wobbles be diagnosed and repaired by a certified technician from YourMechanic.
