[DML] I found a new rattle noise - Steering column U joint?



I thought all of my rattles were gone but it looks like I found
another one.  It appears one of the shift column U joints is making a
rattling noise.  The good news it Martin sells the whole linkage and
it isn't too expensive.

I'm wondering if it might be wise to remove and inspect the steering
rack for noises as well.  Martin sells a nice rebuild kit however I
will need to inspect the steering rack for pitting before I spend the
money on one of his kits.

The driver side steering rack bushing seems to have a small crack in
it as well.  I'm not sure if this is making a rattling noise but it
might be causing noise too.  If I do rebuild the steering rack I will
probably replace both bushings just because I will already be in
there.

Here is a video of the rattle.  Any suggestions or do I seem to be
correct about the U joint making noise?
