However, it definitely seems there is something wrong with the 
steering, the steering wheel it still stays slightly left after making 
a left turn... and vice versa after making a right turn...  Its VERY 
scary on the freeway when the steering wheel wont "turn" the car in 
this play area.. (about 10* either way)

I just want to see if anyone has the same issue before throwing more 
money at it... is there anything I can check without taking the rack

I would suspect one  of your strut bearings may be binding.  This is what happened on my 200q20v - would pull in one direction then the other after the wheel was turned.  The bearing when they go bad will bind and twist the spring causing the steering to be pulled in one direction or the other.  This can be accompanied by a clunk sound.
