Usually a rack gives you a grinding sound along with soft and hard steering.
Tie rods can thud like ball joints. My old 99 Dakota ate ball joints like a fat kid eats cupcakes and over the 10 years I drove that rig I put in a total of 6 sets of upper and lowers. On the last go around I was shocked to find out it wasn't a bad ball joint that was doing the classic thud at low speeds, it was a bad tie rod. You will feel the thud of a ball joint or a tie rod vibrate back up through the steering as it's all interconnected.
