Default Steering Rattle unable to fix

So far I have found these 2 guys on youtube with the same rattle as mine. Please help us diagnose this if you know the problem. Thanks!!

mine does that too from a dead stop. The dealer has replaced pump and rack to no avail.

Now, they are hinting at replacing another steering line.

So is it the steering column?? Here is my video.

Thanks for the info.. yes mine does that too both at stop and low speeds. At least now we also know that replacing the rack does not fix it.. I wonder though if dealership really replaced your rack.

ya, but the tires slightly shutter when this happens, which is why I didn't think it is the column.

jaswrx what do you mean tires slightly shutter? I haven't observed from the outside when it rattles.

ya, but they are pretty much skipping when I do it. You can hear the tires struggling when it happens and it is transmitted through the steering wheel.

Car is at the dealer now. They are thinking one of the black rubber steering lines since that is pretty much the only thing left they have not replaced? Maybe internal crack. When they replaced the rack, they said the hard lines were replaced...
