i tried to check the ball joints, they are all fine. the sound is coming more from the middle of the truck, not from either side of the suspension

the noise is coming from the front end. but in the middle, like not dr or pass side suspension but from the center, like under the wannabe skidplate.

i mean i know i have a 3 inch lift and all but even with the lift the rack and pinion angle is not even maybe 5 degrees off of factory at the inner tie rod... what should i do? i mean yes i can see where they are coming from but i only have 10,176 miles on the truck. ive only had the lift on for like 1200 miles at the absolute most. im fairly certain it would take longer than that for my rack and pinion to take a shit... that has to be a defect...has anyone else had this problem?
