    I'd start with the track rods but its worth looking at the steering damper too.

    I'll be up your way tomorrow, if I get a chance I'll call in.

    +1 on blend motors.
    Check all steering joints and damper.
    If you do the blend motors, change heater core o rings at the same time as they WILL leak at some point, and it saves stripping the dash again. They only cost a few pennies.

    +1 on track rod, drag link and damper. also check the adjustment of the steering box.
