Welcome to the forums

It probably has a worn out steering box but other componets can also be bad. get some one to help you, 1 person rock the steering wheel back and forth while the other looks for play in the different steering parts. If it is all steering gear box the the steering shaft will move a fair amount with the pitman arm [other side of box] not moving at all. Bad shocks can also make it handle bad.
