I got my unicycle back from the shop today. All clicking and loseness of the joints is gone, but now it wobbles side to side as I ride it or roll it along. Is this normal?
Check the bearing holders.
Well i did replace the old ones with new sealed bearings. The old ones weren’t sealed.
What am I looking for. I’m incompetent.
what kind of uni is it?
Make sure they are clamped in tightly…
Outside of that…erm…just check every bolt for tightness.

No, not normal. Try reproducing the wobble when you’re not riding or
rolling, but holding it while it stands on the ground. Then carefully
check what wobbles with respect to what. If you can’t see it, you may
still be able to feel it. That should give you an idea about what it
is that is loose (or possibly broken).

Nothing is loose, but there is a light grinding noise coming from somewhere. When spinning the wheel lightly it is enough to stop the spinning when the right pedal in almost fully up.
I think it’s a bearing problem, but then again I don’t know anything about bearings.
Maybe something is hitting the frame? I had that when I got my new super wide hub for the coker the spokes hit the frame. Check for anything touching thats not suposed to.
sounds to me like you have a spacer(s) rubbing on the bearing holder(s).
wobbling side to side while pushing it, the weight from the pedals will pull the wheel side to side. This also happens naturally while riding because you are putting more weight on the foreward pedal.
