New member/owner I have the Nardi Torino steering wheel and it is some what sloppy( left/right- up-down movement. Is there a bushing that needs replaced. Thanks in advance for any help.

I doubt the issue has anything to do with the Nardi steering wheel itself, unless it was improperly mounted, but probably the only way to find the problem is to remove the steering wheel and start wiggling things to find loose or worn parts.

Your steering wheel likely has a Nardi or Momo adapter to mate the aftermarket steering wheel to the original steering column, and those screws  could be loose. Or the issue could be in the steering shaft bearings & bushings at the top and/or bottom of the steering shaft. The shop manual shows those bearings and provides instructions for disassembly/reassembly; if you don't own one, you should get one, along with an Avanti parts catalog (eBay or Avanti parts vendors).

If your car has a GM tilt column there are some screws in it that sometimes loosen up  which will give up and down movement.  Gm mechanics should be familiar with the fix, BE Sure that you specify they use loctite on the screws. BTDT.   Lou Cote
