Did you check the steering column busing? Up in the firewall area?

Possible the problem is in the rear and you are only noticing it through the steering because the rear has no inputs to the driver?

Check the tension rod mounts to see if they are messed up?

Have you had someone shake the steering wheel back and forth lightly with the wheels on the ground and looked at every pivot point? That's one of the things I'd suggest. Same thing if you jack the front up and lock the steering wheel with an alignment steering wheel lock and shake the front wheels a little to check the same. Both are a two man job but might yield a weak point causing excess play in the steering enough that would be allowing the shimmy in the steering to cause such instability, also are you using a solid steering bushing?

one side of the new steering rack seems to have an excessive amount of play. The driver side output moves around 1/4"+ when forcing the wheel back and forth while the passenger side doesn't move at all. I guess this rack I got is junk. According to the interwebz the reman racks are complete junk and its common.

Sounds like that could definitely be the cause

Hopefully a new rack fixes this.

^^^^^Nice! Duely noted for me not to buy a re-man steering rack.
