Mine was making the rattling noise for quite a long time (3-4 months) before the squeaking started. I couldn't determine where the rattle wa scoming from, just sounded like it was from the below the trans tunnel somewhere. It was only when the s/wheel squeaking got worse and worse and the steering started feeling funny that I got the dealer to do something.
It was only after it was done, that I realised the vibrating rattle must have been the rack bush as well as it had disappeared after the rack was replaced.
