Wobbling steering

I have a 1996 Honda Prelude S F22a1 engine 5 speed that wobbles while driving when I step into the gas at any speed. The harder I step into the gas the worse it gets. Does not wobble when I coast at any speed. It started occurring this past Saturday for a moment then went away. Now it's back. The car is lowered approx 2 inches with Skunk 2 coil overs and stock struts. The car handled and felt fine until wobbling started. Tires are fairly new. I even rotated them just to make sure. Could be the axles?

Re: Wobbling steering

Sounds like an inner CV joint issue

Re: Wobbling steering

Problem solved. Inner CV joints. Very little play created a lot of wobble under acceleration. I replaced both axle assys @ $50 a piece from Advanced Auto. Wobble gone.
