Post c36 steering play (c class)

Hi everybody
Can you help me i have a 97 c36 and have a problem when locking the steering to the right while driving the steering wheel makes short movements left and right and it sounds as if the tyre is dragging while the steering is fully turned, sometimes there is a slight whinning noise aswell. Its strange cus if i turn to the left that is ok. History of my car it was moted last week and an antiroll bar bush was replaced on the same side where i have the problem, the tracking has been done about 2 months ago, the tyre has also been wearing on the outer edge the same side, steering damper changed 2 months ago as leaked this is the second one in the last 3 yrs, 2 x front wishbones changed 2 yrs ago as one of the bushes had worn which was the offside caster bush in one wishbone (but i decided to change the 2 wishbones). Lower ball joints replaced about 3 months ago. Last service at andy gayles (MB Specialist showed slight play in steering box and rack but nothing to worry about at present). My thoughts are that it may be a bush on the steering idler on the left hand side any ideas????

By tracking, do you mean alignment?
