This noise or feeling in the steering wheel is during acceleration and braking. It is getting a lot worse over time. It started at around 10,000 miles. The car has less than 25,000 miles now.
While pulling off and turning the steering wheel to either the left or right, is when I hear the clunking/knuckling sounding noise. This noise first occurred around the 48k milage point and now it is more pronounce at the 77k.
