Question about Cars & Trucks
There seems to be an excess amount of play in the steering
Have a professional check this. Unless you are well versed in how your steering gear works and is tested then have a pro look at it. This could be a very dangerous situation. Get it looked at ASAP

What year is your vehicle? If it is older and is equipped with a gearbox instead of rack and pinion you need to take the slack out of the gearbox. There is an adjustment nut on top of the gearbox. You will need a ratchet with a long extension and a socket, I think its 17mm. You will see the nut with a slotted post in the middle. Loosen the nut then use a long screwdriver to tighten the screw about 1/4 of an inch. Dont tighten it too much you can cause the steering to bind if you do and ruin your gearbox. Just tighten it enough to take the salck out,. I had to do this on my 95 bronco.
