I checked today, with a friend standing outside. with the engine off, I moved the wheel back and forth, the wheels immediately turned with the motions of the steering wheel.

the play occurs, only with the engine running.
steering linkage in good shape

I went ahead and swapped the rear wheels off My van (had better tread,was going to do it anyway). still about an inch of play, occurs only with engine running. so, looks like a steering gear is needed :( the linkages are in good condition

well, I had a shop look at things, was determined that the steering gear was shot, I found a good one at a auto/truck recycling center in a nearby town for $65
I braved the single digit temps and went and picked it up this morning. it is in much better shape, even got the matching pitman arm still attached
will put it on this weekend, it will be warmer :)
