Exclamation Front end Shakes!

I have a 94 Caravan, My wifes car. She recently reported to me that the front end shakes vigorously, when she goes over railroad tracks. I took it for a test ride and sure enough, The front end shakes real hard when crossing tracks. Do you have any suggestions? I also noticed the steering wheel has about 3" play in it.

most likely...

...in a rack and pinion style steering system it's an inner OR outer tie rod. jack up either front wheel and see if you can wiggle the the wheel side to side by holding it front and rear. if that one isn't loose, jack up the other side and try it
