On the bottom of the steering column there is a knuckle joint that gets worn, unfortunately you cannot get this seperate and comes as part of the column. This will fix your problem.

It cat be that the movement is enough to make the car move slightly whilst driving if it was the knuckle joint that is an internal component between the column and the rack so the movement wouldnt be on the drive train but thanks for the sugestion
