Steering wheel clunk/ rattle????

I have an 08 250 ccsb 4x4 that I have brought to the dealer several times and they tell me nothing wrong. When I am on rough or dirt roads I feel a clunk rattle in the steering column. Feels exactly like a gm that has the famous intermediate steering shaft clunk. Anyone else have this and if so what's the fix

I have a similar issue that started a few weeks ago. It feels to me like a bearing in the top of the steering column is bad, but it only does it randomly. Curious to see what response you get, so subscribed.

Just came back from maine and it drove me nuts the whole way. But dealer can't duplicate it. Even with me driving they can't hear it
