Check the end play of the inner tie rod ends. With the wheels lifted off the ground there shouldn't be any noticeable movement. You're just looking for end play. you only have to use your finger tips and feel for any free movement at all. If the inner tie rods are ok, check how much play you have between the rack gear and the pinion gear. you should look at the u-joint for the steering column. look for any loose movement in the u-joint operation.

noise when hitting slight bumps while driving slowly is related to the sway bar link pins and sway bar frame bushings a lot of times.

I'm glad you got it fixed. I am sure you feel much safer knowing everything is tight with your steering now.
