i have alot of slack in the steering..1970 impala

1970 impala steering wheel not responding in the middle feels like it leans from one side to the other depending on which way im turning, some one told me it might be the center drag link.

You'll have to get under the car and take a look.

Get someone to turn the steering wheel and see if the pitman arm moves immediately.
If not, there is play in the steering box.

If that checks OK, check for slack in the other components.
