I need to replace my steering rack as it has busted. Is that the noise i heard when i was turning?

When i turn left i hear a stretching or bumping noise coming from the rear left (i think) would that noise be coming from the faulty steering rack?

Update:

Yea i pretty much knew it wasnt the steering rack. I was just hoping because im replacing that anyway. If it is the struts becoming loose, is that something i would be able to fix myself?

    Most cars come with front wheel steering system, so that stretching or bumping noise has nothing to do with the steering rack

    Check if the shock absorbers are worn, instead (you may need a Mechanic)

    that,s not the rack. all the rack does is help you turn the wheel. jack it up and shake the wheels. you might have a bad ball joint or a loose strut.
