This one is puzzling. My first thought is with all the stuff you installed something is loose or out or position. Problem with that theory is the mechanic should have noticed something when you got the front end aligned.. Otherwise I would ask you to check tie rod ends.

The fix for the wobble,bad new axle..or just to lose,put the old one back in and problem solved..the other one was very lose in the tranny..and when I took it out it was very lose on the tranny side also,like it would flop around shaking the cv joint..
