Clunk when turning

Hi folks, It's been a while....

I've got a good "clunking sound' coming from the front end when turning either way. Had kid turn the wheel while I looked and it seems like the tie rod has way too much play up and down as it rotates with the drag link.

I ordered a new end to end kit from 4WD.

Anything else I should look at? Knuckles seem fine.
