I'm no expert on steering racks but with the car on stands, grab the tire at 3 and 9 and check for free play while watching the steering wheel. Hold the steering shaft just behind the rack and wiggle the road wheel. This should give you some idea about where the problem is.

I installed a zerk fitting in the plate opposite the steering shaft and, with the gaiters removed, pumped grease into the rack until it oozed out the ends. I know it's not the approved fluid but it works for me.
