Put the tyres up to 36 psi all round and see if that makes any difference.

Most definitely overdue for suspension and steering geometry check. Also, given the age of the car, it is likely some of the bushes will be worn, which will contribute to the "loose" feel.

Just look in the last place you saw your steering. Good luck finding it.

Are you running spacers in front.? Or wheels that push out more than stock.?
If you do this , it will " toe " your front wheels out a bit , making the rear seem wobbly. Alignement should do it, or maybe steering rack bushing, if there is one one these models.
