Default another front end rattle

i checked the steering column knuckle but i really feel like the vibration "drum" sound is coming from both front wheels. an expansion joint makes the front end sort of hum/drum or drone? not a clunk or knock. yes i read about the rear control arm bushings but they both look good with a bit of prodding with a pry bar. new struts might help? strut mounts? subframe bushings?

pretty sure some of it is from the steering column knuckle. i tried tweaking the knuckle/bolt under the dash and no luck. maybe a different shaft from a junkyard nox might help? they are 60 or so online.
