Is my steering ok? Video inside

Hello All,
I have a 2013 JKUR and I was investigating a small steering click as the steering wheel moves 5 degrees either side of center.

My steering feels good over all.. but I did notice my tie rod and drag link? moved ~1/4" inches as in the video.. Just to add.. I do not experience any clunks on potholes.. just want to know if this is normal.

It is nice and warm today in MA, so I can look again if you have any questions.

That movement in the tie rod is normal. Whats the other click your hearing? Can you film that?

Thank you so much for answering. The other click is a little bit of a challenge to film. I have to get a buddy to move the wheel to film underneath the jeep.
