DW or just plain worn out steering..

What is the difference between DW and just worn out steering??? say like an old Chevy where you have to turn the wheel 180* before you get any movement in the wheels.......(Yea i drove a friends like that and let me tell you how i kept it out the ditch at even 25mph on a ruff clay road that was no wider than the truck is beyond me!) And like my ZJ that it takes an 1inch or 2 to get movement out the wheels going down the road.. Is DW like going down the road and the whole front end starts jumping and moving around like a FWD car with a bad CV-shaft? I am rather confused on this subject.... I think the only cars i have driven with as many if not aton more miles and not have steering problems would have to be fords!

Worn out steering is when your driving and you turn the wheel and think " wow, this steering is worn out", DW is when your driving and the whole front of the jeep starts shaking violently like someone removed every single nut and bolt in your front end and its shaking itself apart, you think death is imminent until you slow way down, usually to around 25 - 30 mph.
