Thanks in advance for the help!

Wore the eff out rack?, loose connection to steering rack?, toe rods loose?

more info needed.

have someone move steering wheel back and forth hold you hand on all joints and find the loose ones and replace.

Thanks, I'll start there, I was just making sure there wasn't a common failure point in the front end. This was helpful even though I didn't give a whole bunch of information.

After checking those things, like the tie rod ends and their bolts, if it turns out the box has a bunch of play you can send it in to Super Dave for a rebuild. The stock box components are not the best. Mine had a lot of play and when I pulled it out it was filled with rust and the bushings were shot. Super Dave rebuilds them with better components and it was pretty affordable. It's a pretty common failure point on the OGs.

I narrowed it down to tie rod ends that are worn. I'm replacing them this weekend, thanks for the help!
