I'll chime in again on the side of the "fix it correctly" people.

Right now you are facing a job that is $13 in parts and an hour of work.

When (not if) the steering rack gets buggered up, you will be facing a job that is $600 in parts and you may have to pull the engine out to get to the steering rack, I would in my cars. And that "clicking" only happens in CV joints, not the steering rack afaik.

I know you are tempted by the "simplicity" of some improvised "fix". Every time I have done that it has come back to bite me in the backside. Maybe you will be luckier. Or you will sell the car before it becomes a "problem".
