2004 Ls Lincoln. I have about a 1/16 steering wheel play left or right before I feel it engauging the rack&pinion assemble while driving. Is this normal? Something to add,I just had the motor replaced and I don't seem to remember this before. Any thoughts?

    Perhaps there is play in a tie rod end giving you that excess play, the vehicle needs to be jacked up and properly supported with both front wheels off the ground to examine what in the suspension or steering may be causing a little excess play.
