    I beat it you rack and pinion. I had the same problem when you steer in sweak so bad it sounded like crap. I got my grease gun (used a light grease not a heavy grease) and bought a needle attachment at autozone. Jacked her up with the wheel fully turned one way and stuck the needle into the steering rack and pinion boot pumped quite abit of grease in there. Then turned the wheel fully the oppistie way and did the same thing with the other boot and steered back and forth to work the grease in. I have done this twice in the past 6 years and she is nice and quite the way she should be.

    Only a suggestion what I think is your problem and what I did to resolve. Some or maybe many people may disagree, but it worked for me. Hope this is it and helps you out.
