Question about Delta Faucet Delta 470-BL-DST Signature Single Handle Pull-Out Kitchen Faucet With Spray
You will need someone to help you hold faucet body and assembly to sink, so that you can tighten up rod from under sink without it getting bound.

The faucet got "wobbly" in first place because the O-Rings between the body of the faucet got gunked up with minerals from your water. The spout got stiff, requiring you to apply more force, thus loosening the retaining nut underneath.
The answer is to take some grit cloth/very fine sandpaper and clean the inside of the spout body. Wipe clean. I would also suggest replacing the O-Rings on the faucet body, but at the very least wipe the O-rings and faucet body clean.
THEN: lubricate the inside of the spout body AND the O-Rings with silicone grease. It's translucent and readily available and the only thing I would ever use for a faucet repair. NOT plumber's grease, NOT WD-40.
Reassemble and enjoy.
N.B. If you have buggered up a part, Delta has a really good warranty for the original owner's of a faucet. Receipt not always required.

there is always water pressure on the sprayer when water is on. if sprayer is leaking check if trigger is stuck in . best to just change the sprayer handle it comes off at the base of the handle

Point your water line into a bucket and turn the water on at the wall. If you get a good flow, we'll go back to the faucet. No kinks in the supply lines, right? The reason I ask is this was reminiscent of a recent problem where my friend could get hot water to the faucet, and it would slowly go down to a trickle. The problem was that the supply hose had a bit of a kink in it, and got choked off when the line got hot.
OK, good flow into the bucket. Sometimes the supply lines can delaminate, and choke the water off as well. Since you have a sprayer faucet combo, make sure that the flex hose that dispenses the water, and has the weight on it to retract the nozzle back up doesn't have a kink either. Remove the spray nozzle, and try the faucet, holding onto the hose. It's possible that the spray selector could have a problem, so check the spray head and diffuser. With the water on, push the sprayer button, and see if the problem might be there. Remove the aerator on the end of the sprayer, and check the screens for pluggage. My guess is that the issue is in the spray head.
Best regards, --W/D--

Testimonial: "Thanks for the help, after trying all those ideas we decided we needed to get a new faucet because the pressure was good everywhere else. Thanks DM"
If the 470 is typical, there should be two large nylon nuts on the bottom of the faucet tubes that hold the faucet to the sink. First, turn the water off, then open the faucet to drain any pressure. Next, disconnect the feed lines (hot and cold) that connect to the faucet from under the sink (be prepared for some water back flow, so paper towels would be a good idea). After the feed lines are disconnected, you should be able to reach up (usually behind the back of the sink basin) and access the two large nylon nuts (one on the cold and one on the hot). These nuts typically have raised portions so that you can get a grip on them. If you are lucky, you will be able to turn them (lefty loosey, righty tighty) by hand. If not you may have to work for some time with various pliers or other tools getting them to turn. Once you have them off, the faucet will simply lift up from the sink. Installation of another faucet should simply be the reverse procedure.
