58Bonne's 1958 Bonneville

1951 Pontiac Chieftian.  Steering seems real sloppy.  Wondering what can be done to tighten it up a bit since there is a LOT of play in the wheel when driving it.  Would appreciate any suggestions, ideas, or web sites where I can get help or parts to correct this problem.  Many Thanks!

Start with checking your wheel bearings, then move to your steering components. Often the gearboxes just wear out and a new one can make it drive like new. Have someone move the wheel while you watch the steering and see where the slack is coming from. A car that old, I would expect it all is worn out, but some may have been already replaced.
