You're correct, thats what its for. The steering gears eventually wear and you can adjust that to take some slop out of the steering wheel. You don't want it too tight though, otherwise the steering wheel won't come back to center by itself and you'll have to pull it back every time you turn.

Adjust it 1/4-1/2 turn, no more. If the steering wheel gets hard and it's still wonky, your gear is probably shot.
