[DML] Steering column vibration when braking



I'm still getting a rythmic pulsation in the steering wheel/column when braking, especially when only braking moderately. It gets a little better when braking hard.

Please read the following carefully, so as not to recommend an action that I've already taken. I HAVE:

Brake calipers completely replaced
Brake discs replaced
Rubber brake lines replaced
Brake master cylinder replaced
Upper AND lower control arm bushings replaced
Lower control arms boxed in
Tie rod ends replaced about 5-6 years ago, but not a whole lot of miles on them.

I have NOT YET:

Replaced the steering column bushing (and it is gone)
Replaced the steering rack

I'm at the point where I'm thinking this is a combination of the worn away column bushing and slop in the steering rack.

What say you?
