    steering rack is the main part of your steering
    your track rod ends fit to it

    if there is slight play in it then it will be worn

    when you turn ya steering wheel the wheels should move straight away and if you can turn steering wheel left and right about 1 inch and the wheels dont move then its worn mate

    not easy job to change either
