Possible steering rack issue

I've been getting this noise for about a month now and it's been getting worse, although the video makes it sound abit worse than in person. It's loudest while parking, and non-existent if I go above 20mph, which makes sense because the faster I go the less load on the steering system.

My mechanic and the dealer both suggests it's the steering rack although no detailed diagnosis was done yet. Dealer wants 3k for replacing the rack so I'm trying to see if I can find one from a junk yard. Anyone else ever experienced or heard of this issue?
