Different expert here.
I need the 17 digit VIN number of your vehicle to pull service bulletins for specific application

There isnt any service bulletin on front end noise. There is one on rear end noise, which is to replace the coil spring urethane cushions. Below are ALL suspension and steering bulletins and recalls

would you have any suggestions on where I could look for the rattle could it be coming from the steering shaft going to the rack and pinion? or is anything could be bouncing on anyting down there?

Check the intermediate shaft coupling ujoint for play in it
