yeah you have to lean toward a front end problem since you have new tie rod and ball joints somehow steering gear(rack and pinion)must have play somewhere lift her up and try to figure where the play is.the steering gear(rack) is easy to replace i did mine in my driveway in 2 hours.rebuilt units are sold as 1 piece and are cheap 200.00 around here in ontario canada.usually when the rack goes it leaks oil (atf+4)if all else fails have a mechanic give an estimate for work needed.still have shops around here that gives free written estimates then decide whether or not to do work yourself.good luck
