Steering rack bushings

My steering rack on my 03 tacoma is moving side to side very slightly and i do not know whether or not to replace the bushings. Does anyone know how thick in measurment they should be?

If they move then they need to be replaced. Look here for replacement ones:

Yes but it moves very slightly, approximately a qtr of an inch and the truck only has 30,000 miles on it and i personally do not feel any play in the steering wheel while driving the truck.

It sounds like it should be fine then, but keep a close on on things though.
