Alright so my bars move just the smallest bit, I'm talking less than the size of a flea, and my dad thinks it's the headset. I myself think it's the stem because it's a shitty ass stolen top load.

If there's play in the head tube then its the headset. If the 6 stem bolts are tight then its not the stem.

He's right, it will be the headset. If the Bars can move in the Stem then they would move a lot more than that.
