How do I take out the slack of right and left of my steering wheel on a 1991 chevy truck?

Google states: Hold the ateering shaft at the steering box with a wrench or channel locks, have someone get in and turn the wheel. If the wheel turns and the shaft doesn't, then your problem (or at least part of it) is in the shaft between the wheel and the box. If the wheel does not turn then hold the steering box output shaft and do the same thing. If the wheel turns and the arm does not then you have play in the box. This should be adjustable. If there is no play in the box then check the tie rods and ball joints.

My 89 chevys tilt steering moves up and down and will not lock in place how do i fix this.

There are broken parts in the wheel. It takes special tools to remove the steering wheel. Some auto parts stores will rent or loan the tools if you buy the parts from them.

How do i replace the key and tumbler on a 91 chevy 1500?

You need to go to the part store and buy a special tool that compresses the spring inside the steering column. Don't cut corners, Disconnect the truck's battery. Without the tool you will not get the column back together. With the tool you will compress the spring, remove the clip above that dust shield. and then start to pull it apart. Remember to put everything back together how it was. That dust-cover looking thing must go back exactly how you found it or you will damage the plastic pieces to the horn circuit. When you pull the cover off for the horn be careful with the wire. Push and turn counterclockwise to remove. And you will pull out the directional lever and unscrew the little Phillips head screw from the hazard button so the turn signal Assembly can be moved so you can access the screw that locks the key cylinder in place.

There's too much play in the steering wheel of my 94 chevy silverado. How do I fix it?

play in the steering wheel for that truck is more than likely caused by worn tie rod ends, and sometimes ball joints. The steering box is least likely to give you problems, unless it had bolts come loose. Check out the tie rod ends first; with the vehicle off, have someone else turn the steering wheel from left to right within that free zone, and look at the joints in the steering linkage. If you see one half of the joint moving more than the other half, you know it need replaced. If you have more questions, or if you need more help, feel free to post a comment, and I'll check up on it so you aren't left hanging.

While driving down the road my 88 chevy 1500 wants to swerve to the left and then to the right. I had the wheels balanced, and have put new shocks on the front. Any ideas?

Check ball joints and tie rod ends for play. Jack the truck up on the frame and try to move the wheel up and down for ball joints and side ti side for tie rod ends. Also make sure you check the idler arm on passenger side and pitman arm on steering box. None of the parts should any play whatsoever. If there is any play in them when you try to move them then replace them.
There could also be excessive play in the steering box but that shouldn't make it swerve back and forth. That would just let it wander to one side or the other until you corrected it by turning the wheel. Hope this helps.
