Jack up and support the front end.
Have someone turn the wheel 180 degrees in one direction while watching the inner tie rod movement compared movement of the input shaft of the rack.
There should be minimal backlash between the two.
If you see excessive movement of the input shaft with minimal movement of the tie rod, then you have worn gears in the rack and pinion.
