I get this, but only say if the 2 front wheels go over a short series of bumps awkwardly. Even at a slow speed. The lower part of the steering column seems to vibrate a bit, but I can't move anything by hand and the whole column feels tight, nothing loose?
s**t me, interior noises. Frickin never ending.

It's not some of the 5 lekky plugs that sit halfway down the column might be loose from their mounts.
You can wrap and tape some foam around them if they prove to be the culprit.
