    play in the steering - ordered by ease of doing for a lone wrencher:

    go to narrower tires - 12.5s have a tendency to wander more than 10.5s

    make sure all tie rod ends are tight

    eliminate slop from the other links, and from the steering box - by removing shims from it

    adjust caster angle



    as far as the brakes: I know nothing about drum brakes
