Default Low speed front end rattle

I am headed back to the dealership to have them figure the source of a rattle/knock I hear primarily below 20mph. I have had in the last year 2 sets of struts, all bushings replaced, rack and pinion gear replaced and still I get this noise. It is most noticeable on gravel road or rough pavement. I can also feel thru floor and brake pedal. Any ideas on what to look at?

Check for broken or torn motor/transmission mounts.

They are telling me tie-rod end? Sound likely based on what I described?

Possible.
Was it same place that did other work? If so, ask why they never looked at it before, and take your business elsewhere.
