You mean like "do it right"?
Sure, you can start throwing parts at it. Probably the tie-rods, ball
joints, whatever, are getting well worn, but to do it right you need
to test them and determine where the problem is.
It will never steer like a new vehicle--and a 58 is probably worth
keeping original if possible.
Have you adjusted the lash on the steering box?
On the steering gear box there is a set screw and nut. The nut is loosened
and the srew is torqued to specification and then is loosen x turns and nut
is retight. You may want to keep an eye out for a replacement or
remanufactured steering gear box that one is not going to last forever. I
have a 64 Ford F100 and my steering gear box gave out and I'm still trying
to find a good replacement for it.
