Check the rag joint between the steering column and the steering box for the play problem. The steering wheel lifting sounds like the "tilt" mechanism is toast if it just moves up and down and not sideways too. Just have to take it apart and see what's wrong.

Thankyou for the helpful information I bought this car knowing little to none about the car other than the general basics
