Basically the only thing that wears out is the pulley bearing. Just check it for slop or roughness.

On my LT1 there is no spring tensioner. Loosen the alternator bracket and rotate to add tension.

Very strange, I have '96 LT-1 and it has the alternator fixed in position and a tensioner pulley.

As CruisinGA said, the only thing that normally wears out is the bearings in the pulley. The spring in the tensioner could break, but that would be unusual.

Something is wrong, because it shouldn't wobble at all. It is either bent or loose. You can buy just the pulley. I would take my old one in to be sure, but here is one: http://www.oreillyauto.com/site/c/de...3308&ppt=C0328

Mine looks like this, but again I would carry my old part in. This is for a '96 Z28.

The pulley bolt won't have any impact if you are loose on the spring axis. I misread where you were getting the wobble.
