its a 97 eddie bauer with aftermarket suspension.
exessive freeplay in direction suspension components, ball joints-inner n outer tie rod, rack n pinnion, hub bearring...lol
on the steering box their is a nut and screw loosten nut tighten screw retighten nut,this will tighten up the steering,it may also need a aligment.
when checking the front end components be sure to check the steering shaft universal joint located about a foot above the steering box. If it is worn excessive play can be observed with 1 person moving the steering wheel back and forth while another watches and using their hands can feel excessive play. If it is worn you would experience wandering and vibration on the highway, which could be misdiagnosed as ball joint problems or some other front end problem. good luck
