How do you adjust the free play in the steering wheel on a 1998 Chevy Suburban 4X4 5.7 L?

You can adjust the steering box some. Or possible ball joint problems. If the problem is lurches and surges in the steering (can feel like loose idler arm, loose ball joints, etc.), one common cause is a faulty steering position sensor. This $60 sensor at the base of the steering column (inside the vehicle) tells the variable assist power steering how fast you are turning the steering wheel.

What if your 1998 town cars has troubles with the steering wheel it spins freely and the wheels will not turn What is the fix for this problem?

If the steering wheel spins freely but the wheels don't turn, the steering shaft (which runs from the steering wheel, into the engine compartment, and down to the steering box) probably came apart. Usually there are one or more joints in the steering shaft, to allow it to angle around obstructions in the engine compartment. It may be that the shaft separated from one of these joints. Find the steering shaft in the engine compartment and see if it's continuous all the way down to the steering box. Also see if when you turn the steering wheel, if the shaft turns also. If it doesn't, then there's a problem with the steering wheel's mounting to the shaft. At the steering wheel, the shaft is usually cut with a bunch of little notches, which the steering wheel hub slides onto. If these notches have gotten stripped, then the hub has nothing to grip, and the wheel will spin free without moving the steering shaft.
