Rack and Pinion noise when steering wheel is turned back and forth

I have a 2011 Cruze LTZ RS. I noticed this AM that the rack and pinion makes a clicking noise when I turn the wheel back and forth. At first I though it was a bad CV Joint. But, the noise is present regardless if the car is moving or not. I don't know what it could be.. I can feel the click when I touch the tie rod or even the control arm. This is only apparent on the left side. I had the rack and pinion replaced a few months ago under the GM factory recall.

Could I possibly have another "bad" rack?

Please advise.

Thank you.

My first thought is one of the rack mounting bushings is either loose or not properly seated.
I'd be inclined to demonstrate this for the shop that replaced the rack since they were the installers.....

On another note, how bout going to a normal size font......giant letters are a bit startling in the morning heh heh.
