The drag link and tie rod will twist back and forth in the joints that's normal.
Have someone turn the steering wheel back and forth while you look for any play in the steering parts. Look very close to the pitman arm because there is most likely going to be some play in the steering box.
Then look at the track bar on both ends. They are well known for the bushing getting sloppy at the bolt that connects to the frame. Also the ball joint at the axle gets sloppy.
The drag link also needs to be watched.
Bottom line if the steering box has play tighten it up first. There is a threaded shaft with a Allen socket in it and a jam nut. Play can be adjusted out if it's not worn out. Once that is taken care of look for anything with slop and replace as necc.
