I believe the rubber cover of the steering rack is making noise when I turn. Should this be a concern?

Why is it all twisted?
Remove the zip tie, straighten out the bellows and replace zip tie with a new one :shrug:
But if I were you I would still try to find out why it got all twisted in the first place.

Well I untwisted, put some wd40 under the rubberpart where the zip tie goes over(sector 111 recommended it) since it was really tight and had no play. Thanks for the tip Mr.C.

I had a similar problem when I replaced my rack. The rubber is so tight on the adjustment rod, it twist when the toe is adjusted. I had the noise that Spartacus mentioned. It went away once I got the rubber straightened out.
