It can be a few things wrong here so the best thing for you and the safest for me to say is take it for a m.o.t even if you still have a long m.o.t. left not much money to pay to get this right

My CRV is jiggling left to right in the front end upon acceleration. What part of the suspension might need to be repaired?

If you can feel it only on acceleration between 15-50mph and it goes away the second you let go of the gas padel at any speed. It might be one of your front axles. I don't know which one, you'll just have to guess on that and hope the first guess is right.
good luck

Momentarily pulls left when accelerating (feels drifty/floaty like being pushed sideways by a strong breeze) then pulls right(same thing) when letting off accelerator. No play/slop in steering.

If you are driving any front wheel drive vehicle, what you are feeling is called torque steer....sometimes it's from poor design but it can also be caused by a broken engine or transmission mount allowing the engine/trans assembly to shift under load or when removing load.
You can do a quick test by holding the brake down firmly and in gear, press down on the gas. have someone watch (from the side of the car ONLY) and see if the engine shifts. Do in both drive and reverse.
Be very careful when doing this that the car does not get away from you and do not hold power for more than about fifteen seconds at a time or it can overheat the transmission. This only works in automatic trans cars... for stickshift ones you need to move the engine with a long pry bar.

Toyota std 1996 pic up/acceleration problem

Well if its having trouble picking up acceleration and you haven't change the fuel filter I would start with that.

It sounds like you have the rest of the basic maintenance already done: Plugs, wires, cap and rotor which is great!

You could also purchase a can of dry gas and try that. Their could just be condensation in your fuel system that is making your car run poorly.

Both of these suggestions are relatively cheap and easy to do so that is where I would start if I was in your shoes.

I hope this gets you started in the right direction and please give me a fixya vote if I've helped you,
