Typically this is a steering rack issue. Sometimes, this can be resolved by bushing replacement on the rack. That's the cheap fix. the expensive fix is a new rack (which is in my future). It will get worse over time if you do nothing, but it is very typical wear, and you probably have a lot of time to deal with it. Check the rack for any leaks, if it isn't leaking, I wouldn't replace it just yet.
