Q: Hearing knocking/rattling noise on Drivers' side on 2007 Chrysler Sebring

I am hearing a rattling or knocking sounds on the drivers side of my vehicle. I hear the noise at all speeds, but I can hear it better when I am driving on the streets rather than on the freeway. The dealer said it was the rack and pinion steering; however, I am not having an difficulty steering the car. The noise is just disturbing.

You could have a loose tie rod, sway bar link, strut or something else. If a shop suggests a repair, I recommend you have them show you how they came up with that determination. They must have experience with the specific noise or saw something during an inspection that was loose.
Thank you for responding. Where do you suggest I go to have the item you listed checked. I am not sure what or how the dealer checked to come up with their diagnosis. I do no want to pay that much money unnecessarily.
