Well I used the trick as suggested above by Brad (thanks), and I got the wobble on the arbor down from 0.003-0.004 to about 0.0015. There was still some noticeable wobble on the blade as the saw was shutting down, and I thought it might be the harmonics of the blade. So I put a brand new rip blade on the saw and it seemed to help, but there was still a little that could be seen as the saw is shutting down.

I wanted to see what the difference in the thickness of the blade and the thickness in the cut was, so I scored a piece of hard maple and measured. The cut was 0.016 wider than the teeth on the blade. I think this may be about as good as I can get it without replacing all of the internal workings.

Sorry…no pictures of the process. The phone was plugged into my speakers while I was working on all of this.
