Default Murano Steering Rack and Pinion Play, Tech Question?

Hi, It's an 05' Murano SL AWD 70K. I recently replaced both loose outer tie rod ends and noticed there was still slight play in the right wheel. I removed the inner tie rod boot and noticed that the rack and pinion shaft moves slightly vertically inside the rack when I apply inward pressure on it. The inner tie rod does not have any play. Is this normal? Is there an adjustment on this rack?

Thanks!

check the bushings/mounting points for the Rack and Pinion

Bushings are fine. With the inner tie rod boot off I can visually see the steering shaft has vertical play/looseness. It's the part that connects in between the inner tie rod and the rack. No leaks and doing what it is supposed to. Should it have any play?
