This may seem like splitting hairs but as best you can describe is it a steady low-pitched KNOCKING/ "THUNKING" sound or is it truely a RATTLE (randomly timed tap/clanking sound)? Does it get worse the more you turn the wheel?

Do you feel any reverberation in the steering wheel when you hear this sound?

Also, is your car manual or automatic?
