SOURCE: looseness in steering column
You can fix it. It's fairly easy,handtools and stearing wheel puller. Theres a bushing that wears out on tilt wheels. The easyest way to tell how to do it is to say, go to your libreay and look it up in their moter manuals. They probaly won't check them out. Butr you can photo copy the pages you need.

I have seen this on many gm cars and trucks.dont remove the column,removal of steering wheel is necessary.if you have air bags this is tricky.there is a clock spring that tells comp. where the wheels are pointed.i dont recommend repair if air bag equipped.take it to a shop.I taped my clock spring and made sure i didnt move it or steering wheel.remove the lock plate and lock ring (tool sold at parts places)
and you will see the problem.dont remember if they are called pins or bushings but I used some type of epoxy after pushing these parts back in.columns vary somewhat but if you get past the lock plate and wiggle you will see the problem.hope this helps

SOURCE: wobbly tilt wheel
Remove horn pad . After removing the large nut SCRIBE A LINE ON THE CENTER SHAFT and the STEERING WHEEL, Using a steering wheel puller, remove steering wheel. Now comes the tricky part. Remove signal stalk ( just pull out a couple of inches ),and 4-way flasher knob. Disconnect multiple connector of signal switch. Remove 3 screws holing switch down. Gently pull upward on switch to expose lower steering bowl. The large bolts are LOOSE that secure it, so the reason for the wobble. Tighten bolts, and reverse procedure.

Without taking the tilt mechanism off you can only reach 2 of the 3 bolts. If you use 1/4 in. socket on 1/4 in drive with 6 in extension you can just get at the left bolt. If you remove the tilt spring you can get to the bottom bolt. To remoce tilt spring retainer use standard Phillips.

Sounds like the vehicle has had a rough time. If you can even get the parts to do a repair would be the real question. it will certainly be simpler to replace it with a recondition assembly. You should get a Haynes or Chilton's repair manual on your vehicle to directions and help in doing the repair.
