Just to give an update on the earlier posts, I also never found a solution and have since lived with the steering issues as it is apparently not impacting safety.

I'm beginning to think into the direction of this being the result of a combination of several factors, specifically:
  • Tear and wear in the involved components that haven't been changed
  • Non-OEM parts which are not 100% up to spec
  • Assembly procedure
When you changed the steering rack, were the tie rods also replaced?
