The suspension is too stiff, and the steering is too loose.
Generally suspension components will not get stiffer unless there is something in the suspension system that is seized or damaged. A full inspection of the suspension system should be carried out. Loose steering on the other hand generally happens when one or more of the steering joints have worn creating excessive play or possibly a worn steering rack. The steering system should be inspected for worn or damaged components and then possibly the vehicle aligned after a steering component is replaced. You may want to enlist the help of a mechanic who can access both the steering and suspension system and perform an alignment if necessary.
