Default Too much wobble

I apologize for another DW question, I have a 93 jeep grand with the V8, last week my jeep went into the death wobble, so the bolt that holds the track bar snapped right off, so I got a new track bar, when I put it on I could tell that the steering felt a bit tighter and it didn't go into a death wobble, a few days later it went into a death wobble AGAIN! And now I hear a pop when I turn the wheel and it sounds like it's coming from the driver side tire, I jacked up the front end and noticed that there's a bit of play when I put my hands on the 3 and 9 o'clock position of my tire and theres a bit of a click, but I'm not really sure where it's coming from, or what it is, would you guys be able to give me some ideas??? Please???

It only clicks while turning?
If so it sounds like your u-joints.
Just had mine replaced two weeks ago. Same issue. I had passenger side clicking only while turning. After I had them replaced, no more clicking.

I didn't change them myself
I took it to the technical college in town and they did it for free.

If you're going to buy new ones though AC Delco/NAPA are a good way to go. Just make sure it has a grease fitting. Just get which evere one is cheaper between the brands. It's actually the same part just different boxes.
