If all of your suspension components are good: Ball Joints, control arm bushings etc. You may want to take a look at your steering yoke. It looks like a small universal joint, located just above where the steering column meets the rack assy. In fact check the condition of the entire steering column. Have someone move steering wheel back and forth slightly (the amount of play in wheel)and follow the components till you see what's moving and what's not.
