struts and links were replaced no noise w/turning only w/hitting bumps sounds and feels like it is under your feet 4.2L i think 2wd

Sounds like the intermediate shaft. I have felt these knock on turns and on road bumps and you feel it by your feet. Many GM vehicle have the steering shaft knock issue and the fix is to replace it.
