I do recall the steering used to be extremely responsive to touch.... now, it'* like a husband... not as responsive anymore.
Hmmm...I always thought that was a wife!
Have you ever had any work done on the suspension? Besides the intermediate steering shaft, the original tie-rod ends are a weak point. Generally, but not always, those will make sort of a clunking noise over bumps.

Did the battery change fix these issues, or are they also still happening and the steering feels a little like a wife?
You are correct my friend, if I were to discuss my issues I should start a new thread but I wasn't trying to. I'm sorry for the mis-interpretation.
I brought up this possible issue of steering on my car in this topic because Archon said we haven't seen play in the steering to be a symptom of the interm.shaft issue thus far. Perhaps it could be a symptom, but folks don't generally notice it as much as they do creaking and clunking...??? Either that or this guy'* dealer is simply giving him the shaft (pun intended). Time will tell.
I can't recall hearing of any rack & pinion failures on the 00+ machines. Am I understanding that you have 1-2" of free play? The $800 sounds about right for rack replacement, you could check another shop for cost estimates.
