I'd get a second opinion. Replacing the axle for the split boot was okay; no harm done there. Is the 'wobble' just in the steering, or does it feel like it is going through the entire car/chassis? Is it only under acceleration, or does it also happen at a constant speed (and is it always the same speed?)? You did a good job with your first post, but there are a lot of things it could potentially be.
If it's only in the steering wheel, then it's probably limited to the front end of the car. If it feels like it's vibrating through the entire chassis, then we have to look further also. Out of balance tire, broken shock/strut, bad ball joint or tie rod end, worn U-joint in the driveshaft...all possibilities. See if you can find a Subaru specialist garage that is more familiar with the brand.
