Noise when turning Wheels at idle and on Dry Pavement

My 2008 Cayman Base makes a grinding noise when turning wheels lock to lock, it happens when parking and at engne idle. I took it into my local Porsche dealer and they diagnosed that the sterring rack was leaking. They replaced the sterring rack, tie rods and associated parts for a total  of $2800.00. The sterring feels fine to me at drive speeds but I'm still hearing the same noise turning the wheels at idle and the feeling in the sterring column and sterring wheel remains after the work was done. I took it back and asked the service manager to sit in the car and turn the wheel but he said he heard nothing. I wish I was imagining the noise/feel , but others who have sat in the car and turned the wheels have felt and expericenced the same results as me.

Any ideas or suggestions as to what might be going on and what I should do  is greatly appreciated
