I have been driving newer cars for the past two years and since putting my caprice back on the road tonight, I'm noticing how loose the steering is, feels as if the steering wheel moves to easily. what parts should I replace to rremedy this minus a full front end rebuild.

Newer steering is often stiffer than older cars. Yours may be just fine. My 92 OCC is really light. My 91 is actually heavier than the 92. Check the parts for tolerance before you just replace parts.

I have a smaller 14 inch steeing wheel on my 91, so that could have an effect on the work I have to do to turn it.
