Loose Steering Shaft??

So for the past few months I've been feeling this clunking when turning the wheel while going over dips or bumps. Feels like the shaft is actually loose when the wheel is turned more than about 90deg. The dealer tried to pass it off as "normal". I wouldn't expect a clunk like this considering the rack is bolted to the frame unless the shaft is actually loose.

Tonight while looking around I pull off the cover on the brake MC reservoir. I can see the shaft as it comes through the firewall, so I grab it and try to move it. It actually bangs around quite a bit! It's like something is loose and would explain the feeling in the steering wheel!!

Can anyone confirm that this is supposed to be loose?? Can you feel play in this part of the shaft??

I need to take it in soon for a "Suspension Fault" light soon. Seems like the Left-Rear sensor as I can watch the screen and suddenly see the LR wheel show full up.

Would you say there is excessive play in the upper steering shaft? :think:

Here is a TSB that might apply.
