    Have you tried the adjustment to "tighten it up"? How about making sure that the "rag joints" from the column to steering box aren't worn out. I've seen that problem numerous times on RWD GM vehicles. Makes for a nice unresponsive steering wheel...like driving a boat.

    Also look under there while someone else rocks the steering wheel from side to side. The box should remain rock steady. A cracked frame or loose bolts will let the box move around, making staying in one lane a real chore! [​IMG]
