I’ve been chasing this noise for a year
Here are the new parts

Rack / pinion
Lower control arm
Wheel bearing
Stabilizer link

I’m having a difficult time determining if it’s in or out of the car . The noise is obvious . Knocks under load / braking

no clicking in axle when turning

Sounds a lot like the intermediate steering shaft. Do some searching here on CMF to find quite a few posts about this in the Gen7 lineup. You can probably also find stuff using Google or Bing, and probably on YouTube as well.

On CMF you'll find posts that talk about the bare metal and the painted black versions of the ISS, and cautions on whether to lube it, as well as other good info.
