This noise has gradually got worse
I have new struts, outer toe rods , steering gear, I shaft , Lower control arm, and sway bar links

the noise sounds like it’s in the dash
It will do it consistently at high speeds on the highway with steering slightly turned to the right , and is aggravated when braking . Noise was taken on the Ohio turnpike near pa border .

The noise also occurs at low speed over rough roads. Any ideas

Possibly the intermediate steering (I.S.) shaft. Search CMF for that, as there are some who greased it to make it better for a while, and others who got a cure by getting the updated I.S.

Hint: Don't grease it!

You'll want to know if your I.S. is painted or not.

I had already replaced it
Still looking for the noise

Have a shop put it on a lift and start looking for loose steering and/or suspension parts. It takes so very little movement to make a noise like that.

Our 2010 had this noise from the 1st month of new ownership. Dealers couldn’t isolate it and it finally went away recently when I replaced the front struts. The bearing in the top of the driver side was bad from the factory.
