86 cj7 steering box

I am about to buy my first jeep and among a few things that i "think" need to be done to it, the guy i'm buying it from said he was going to change the power steering gear box and steering column bearings.
It did feel loose when I test drove it, but i want to make sure i'm changing the right parts the first time. (cause the wife would never let me live it down it not). it regards to "feeling" loose, i kinda expect it cause its prob the original gear box. But I also noticed that the column can be moved up and down, would that be the bearings on the column going through the fire wall? I have so many questions, but getting the steering feeling better is my first priority.. One more question, has anyone ever fit two car seats in the back of a cj7? haha thats a real question.. My little ones need to ride along some times..
