The rack is damaged. Normally it's a metal bar that is notched and desgined to break in this event case.

Do search for the 4WS repairs. I think Cam22T did one once with his own custom replacment parts.

jack it up and see exactly where you're slop is coming from. could be damaged tie rod ends or broken return spring.
