Have to get the front end up,so wheel is in the air,then with wheel straight ahead,tap the bars and watch , front end should fall away easily,( not too easily,have to have a happy medium) in both directions. Also,grab front wheel at bottom and try pulling up on it,see if there is any play in the forks.

Try this, might be of help.

Too loose is just as bad as too tight
