    No headers! That car is bone stock, for what I heard feels like coming from center or inside of the rack I try to feel with my fingers the 2 bolts that holds it to the k member for some movement with no luck.

    Has the car ever been in an accident? Grab your steering shaft and see if there is any movement in it.

    Inner tie rod is a possibility.

    +2 that's what it sounds like to me.

    My w-bodies all have the same type inner tie and that sound is nearly identical to the sounds they make when the inner is bad or going.
