Well i was in the middle of fixing my inner tie rod witch i thought was my problem but turned out to be something else. Don't have the slightest clue what is wrong. Didn't even know how to describe it. So here is a video. Hope someone can help.

Worn out bushing in the steering rack - it is common - yes this is why your front end is loose.

likely Pass side bushing (other end of rack) and/or bushing for "preload" the gear are bad/loose.
