The most common issue is with the stabilizer rod that goes from the left frame rail down to the front axle. It has to hold the front axle solidly in place for the drag link to be able to transfer the steering effort to turn the wheels. Have an assistant turn the wheels side to side while you inspect the linkage for movement, if its worn it will be real obvious. If your not comfortable checking it yourself, give the description of the symptom to the shop, but then ask them to show you the movement.
