If the steering is getting a little hard to turn at low speeds, this would indicate a loss of Power Steering, and the steering is reverting to "Non-Power" steering, just like the days of the Ford Model T or Model A. Loss of power steering is usually caused by low level of PSF (Power Steering Fluid). So first on my checklist would be checking the PSF level in the reservoir. Also bleed (air) from PS (Power Steering) pump.
The Ford Five Hundred has front MacPherson struts, so check these for leakage (of the dampening fluid in the strut cylinder), or breakage of their coil springs. These springs can actually weaken over time, but this is impossible to see - you must "feel" it by bouncing the strut up & down - preferably with your hands on the top of the strut tower in the engine compartment (rather than on the exterior finish). If the MacPherson struts have weak/broken springs, these components are not separately serviceable, and the strut would have to be replaced as a unit (and preferably both left/right to maintain smooth/even ride).
The Five Hundred also has rear shock absorbers with springs - check for leaks/breakage/weakness here too.
Steering losing responsiveness/wander - checklist Priority Action Part Type Cause 1 Inspect Rack & Pinion - Center Wear From Internal Fluid Leaking Around The Rack Piston. 2 Inspect Steering Stabilizer Bracket - Loose or Broken Steering Stabilizer Bracket. 3 Inspect Front Lower Control Arm - Front Lower Control Arm loose/missing bolt(s) 4 Inspect Front Lower Ball Joints - Front Lower Ball Joint(s) Worn/Loose 5 Inspect Front Upper Ball Joints -Front Upper Ball Joint(s) Worn/Loose 6 Inspect Tire Pressure - Tire Pressure should be 35 PSI for the Five Hundred and Montego's P225/55R18 OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) tires.
Harsh ride - checklist
1 Inspect Rear Shock/Strut - Shocks/Strut failing/leaking. 2 Inspect Front Shock/Strut - Shocks/Strut failing/leaking. 3 Inspect Coil Spring - Incorrect Coil Spring Selection or Installation. 4 Inspect Coil Spring - Coil Spring broken.
1992 Toyota Celica is not equipped with front "shocks". This vehicle is equipped with front wheel drive and independent MacPherson strut front suspension. Any repairs made to this system requires the removal of the entire strut assembly, which includes the strut, the coil spring and upper strut bearing assembly.
Replacement of any of the parts of the strut assembly requires the use of specialized equipment designed to compress and hold the coil spring to relieve the tension on the strut and upper bearing assembly.
Any attempt to disassemble the strut assembly without the proper equipment for compressing and securely holding the coil spring can result in SERIOUSINJURY or DEATH.
