Have a 2002 Elantra with 110K miles. A little while ago my steering wheel started wobbling (at low speeds mainly) and front passenger side wheel shakes pretty bad when going over a bump.

Changed tie rod ends, no help.

Outer CV boot is busted, could it be that CV axle needs to be replaced?

Also when car is jacked up the wheel has a few inches of play.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Changing CV boot only doesn't make sense because changing whole CV axle with new one costs almost same. Check the tire. That side tire might have uneven wear. In such case, have tires balanced and rotated.

When's the last time you got a wheel balance and alignment

Wheel travel on one wheel is not the same for the other side on the front?

I'd check the shocks. Shocks and springs are what control the up/down travel.

Balance, rotation, tire wear, alignment are good suggestions for any wobble/vibrations as already suggested above.
