Loose in steering than change inner and outer tie rods.

And alignment

When I said the entire front end, that is exactly what I meant... EVERYTHING!

Control arm bushings.
Ball joints.
Tie rods.
Sway bar bushings.
Steering rack bushings.
Strut bushings.
Struts.
Wheel bearings.

With the miles on your car, everything has to be worn out. I'd just replace all of the components at once and then get it aligned.

I must of missed something, but if you have high milage it maybe time to look into rebuild.

Engine and trans has been rebuilt less than 10,000 miles ago so I'm clear on that end

Papers to prove it was rebuilt? But check your bushings in the rear. And get alignment done.

Front end, do everything straybullit said. Your car is super old, the whole suspension is going to be shot.

Out back, new shocks/spings/isolators/UCA bushings, Steeda or MM control arms and check to make sure your sway bar is even there. They were known to snap on some SN95s (happened to my Cobra) and the PO could have just removed it vs buying a new one. Even with a fresh rearend with a good set of LCAs, the rear isn't exactly great in a Mustang until you convert it to a 3 link or put in an IRS with a good bushing kit.

I have all paperwork on both rebuilds and warranties have been transferred to me. The shocks on the rear are bad and need to be replaced also I am going to check my rear end this weekend as for front end all ready ordered the parts for re doing it and am just waiting on them to be delivered was not cheap but not to bad. It's a project and not my daily driver so I can take my time and get it right

From the pics you posted there looks like there are some rust stains on the paint which leads me to believe that the undercarriage may need a little cleaning... or worse... Make sure you don't have a cancer patient before dumping too much into it. If the driveline is newly rebuilt, this would make a great donor car for a lower mileage V6... or a clean 4 banger fox. A bolt on ModFox is a 12 second car easy because they are so damn light.

I lets the key turn to the release position so you can remove your keys from the cylinder. Why would you want to remove it?
