Where is the wobble? Do you mean it vibrates while driving straight, or cornering, or that there is play to the extent that you have to turn it further than you should have to, to get the wheels changing direction, or it goes up and down loose like the adjustable tilt detent is worn or spring-pin weak, or does it telescope in and out and that is loose?

I assume you've owned it for a while and it was okay then this symptom developed, or was it like this when you received it, like maybe it had been wrecked and reassembled with a new (whatever) that wasn't installed correctly?

Depending on the problem, your mechanical ability, and tools you have, it's fairly impossible to guess whether you can DIY without more info. Generally speaking there is "usually" no need for a shop vehicle lift to do this sort of thing (maybe easier if the steering rack needs replaced), nor any diagnostic scan type tools, though if working around the airbag (IF you are) you should research what precautions are needed to avoid accidentally setting it off.
