Question about 1993 Dodge Caravan
At best, you should have the steering checked by an alignment shop since this is a potentially dangerous problem. There are points between the steering wheel and the front wheels that can fail catastrophically resulting in the complete loss of steering control. You can make a rough check with the help of another by having them turn the steering wheel slowly from lock-to-lock while you watch the actions of the front wheels. Make sure your helper has the engine running but transmission in neutral (or Park) and the parking brake on. When doing this, there should be no delay between the wheels which should start movement at the exact same time. If they do not, then you have a wear point that must be found and repaired before it fails. You can also check for wheel bearing wear by grasping the top of each wheel and try to rock it in and out; if you can see any play, then the bearing is severely worn. Don't delay in finding the problem, an employee of mine had his steering fail on the Interstate and it almost killed him.

You should take it back to the shop that did the alignment. Making sure the steering wheel is straight is part of the alignment. With there being play you may need to have some front-end work done. Have them check it.
