Knocking sound when quickly jolting steering wheel back and forth left to right.

Hey guys, recently I noticed a knocking sound coming from somewhere between the two front wheels when I give the steering wheel some quick jolts left to right.

I don't do big movements, just some quick 1-2 inch back and forth jolts left to right, and there is a metallic clunk/knocking sound coming from somewhere the middle area. Doesn't seem to be at the left or right wheel, but somewhere in the middle.

Any ideas what it could be?

Put your hand on the strut tower while someone is turning the steering wheel and try to feel a vibration.

I've got a 2014 with 67,000 miles that does the same thing. Update the thread if you find out what it is!

Try the above. Very likely it's the top plate bearing of the strut.
