this adjusting screw you are describing sounds like the steering box adjuster.tighten screw till you feel slight resestance, and tighten lock nut. if it still wonders, the box is probably worn out. good luck!

STOP> don't adjust anything without having the shop manual to guide you!
Steering box adjustment is not so simple as some would make it seem. It is a simple procedure that requires following the procedure step by step. Adjustment without the procedure can actually destroy your steering box.
A shop manual for your car probably costs less than $50 and will save you many $$$ and time in screwing around. Knowledge is really cheap!
