I wouldn't drive that car until you check out this problem
It sounds to me like the play is coming from the steering shaft being loose.

Or the bushing was damaged (burned)

That sounds about rite. If you didn't have this problem before the new headers and now do then being that the headers are now rubbing the heat most likely melted the rubber bushing away. Buying new one's will only melt again. You may need to get a new Flaming River unit. Those have no rubber in them and they have more clearance then the stock shaft. I have one myself and it clears my long tubes.

Also check to ensure that the steering shaft isn't expanded. I replaced the steering shaft on my 95 model because I could move the wheel 3-4 inches before the car would respond. Just my .02. Good luck.

Steering shaft, when I bought mine, the play was really bad, It wasn't till i took off the headers and replaced with the original headers that I could see the play in the shaft where it can collapse in an accedent, I shimmed them with some finish nails, and now it is as tight as can be, it may not be the 100% right way to do it, but it worked and will still colaspe, heaven forbide.
