For the last few months, I find the faster I go on the E....

the more freeplay there is on the steering wheel, but the car is still going str8.... where it gets concerning is when i'm on the highway doing 50-60mph in the winter with snow, rain in summer and sidewinds feeling that there's quite a bit of freeplay on the steering wheel....

any ideas why and how to resolve this?

First check the tire pressure ans make sure they are full and after that have someone move the steering wheel back and forth from 10 to 2 with the engine off and inspect the tie rods and rack to see if anything is loose. Make sure the key is in and in the first position to keep it from locking. Side wall flex will cause this and is usually called radial roll.
