Steering rack.

Ok, I'm waiting on the bushing to finish adjusting my tv cable so now I'm turning to my next annoyance with my car. At high speeds I'm experiencing a lot of play in my steering wheel. I've read that maybe my inner tie rods are probably shot. So now I'm wondering if it would be wise to just replace my steering rack and how difficult it would be for me to swap it out myself.

Racks a very easy to change, just count the turns when you take the tie rod ends off so they go back on close to where they was, but when finished it's best to have a alignment done on the front end...

You can replace the inner and outer tie rods, but if the car has a lot of miles on it then replacement may be the best option.

Swapping out the rack is not difficult.
Buy you a Chiltons or Haynes manual and have at it.
