Unhappy Steering Rack Replaced at 40K

I started a thread that was titled "tie rods replaced at 40K". Turned out that the real problem was the steering rack. BMW first replaced the tie rod, but that didn't fix it. Then they replaced the lower steering shaft and that wasn't it. Lastly, they found the problem.......the steering rack.

I noticed the problem when the car was turned off. When I turned the steering wheel left & right, I could easily hear a loud clunking sound from the front end......way down low.

I hope my problem was a fluke and not an indicator of a chronic issue.
