2007 2wd coil. So i have alot of play in my driver side wheel. Ive replaced upper and lower control arms with ball joints, inner and outer tie rods, and hub assembly. The play is when i shake with my hands at 3 and 9oclock. Not at 6 and 12. What should i check next? I was told to look for leaks at the rack amd pinion but i dont notice anything. When shaking the tie rods move alot. And the upper ball joint bolt moves slightly but its tight. Ill try to post a video later.

I would have to take the rack/ wheels/ tie rods completely off the truck to replace right? If thats the issue
Leave it on the ground and CAREFULLY lay under it as safely as possible while someone turns the wheel side to side.

You’ll likely see considerable play in the rack bushings.

That looks correct. That is what I was calling the main bushing. The other bushings aren't serviceable without removing the rack and pressing them out. I'm not sure if they are available anywhere because my MMW steering kit came with new ones when I purchased their kit.
OK. Thanks for all your help. I'll check it over the weekend

Took it to 2 shops for inspection. They are both saying its the inner and outer tie rods and the lower ball joint. The rack looks good. Looked over my reciepts from a year ago, turns out i only did the tie rods on on passenger side. Just ordered the parts. Will replace sometime next week. Wish me luck!
