Tony, that sounds like a tie rod problem. Grab the tie rod near the wheel and try to shake it around. It shouldn't shake around. I think you want the wheel to be resting on the ground, but maybe it should be jacked up - I forget. Also, if you have an assistant, have them start the car and remain parked. Then watch the front wheels as they turn the steering wheel side to side. If they don't move smoothly, that's not good.
