Lincoln LS: steering drift

2005 ls v-6. I've noticed that, at highway speeds, there is some difficulty keeping a straight line without constantly moving the steering wheel slightly back and forth. The car seem to drift from one side of the lane to the other. There is a sort of "dead zone" at top center and a few degrees in either direction in which you can turn the wheel without a response from the tires. we are trying to understand what is causing this problem?

    Have the car checked ASAP for this condition. You may have component wear that could turn into a complete failure and loss of control.

    It's not a good sign. I agree with doc, by all means check for something worn like a ball joint or tie rod. On a more positive note, a good alignment might solve the problem of drifting but if you have lots of play in the steering, that's not really an alignment symptom.
