?? is it the steering rack? could be a bush or something, sorry i'm not too hot up on steering issues, as ive not tackled it myself yet.

i'd be interested to hear what it is though..

kinda what i was thinking...if you jack your car up in the air, and take off both front tires, well technically you don't have to take them off, take your hand and put them on the tie rods...if you can move them in and out without a lot of effort then your inner tie rod ends are probably shot.
