Default steering wheel moving when driving

2006 PT CRUISER GT 125k my steering wheel is moving when driving only when I let go the gas, if I accelerate or stopping the steering don't move only when I let go the gas and the car is slowing down to stop, the steering wheel shakes side to side but stops when I press the brake pedal any idea what can this be?
thank you

I would say it is time to lift and secure the front end off the ground and do a front suspension inspection for worn steering and other parts.

I just use the small jack and lift one wheel at the time
the right tire if I move it there is a play and sounds like a small metal noise, coming from the rack and pinion
