how do I know if my stabilizer is worn

how can I tell if my steering stabilizer is worn?

What are the symptoms of a worn one. I have never driven with a new one, so I have nothing to compare it to.

Right now I have a pretty loose steering wheel.....maybe stabilizer? I retorqued the pitman arm and replaced the drag link that helped, but still loose.

I'm a wh0re for free stuff

Take the stabilizer loose and push it in and pull it out, if there is little to no resistance either way its bad.
