Usually it's the intermittent shaft between your steering wheel and the steering yoke at the pinion attachment point. It is designed to fail to decrease the steering wheel intrusion during a frontal crash. There is a small amount of play in it which is inherent to the design but over time it can get more pronounced.
I repaired mine with some JB weld and it fixed it but ***FULL DISCLAIMER****
that's just me and my rig. I'd suggest having a drive train specialist check it out or take it to an authorized Toyota mechanic. It's a fairly common problem but can be repaired.

The rattling noise once the driver-side wheel hits a bump can be attributed to some or a few potential causes. Here are the possible problems: 1. Loose/worn out steering components (e.g., tie rods, ball joints, control arm bushings). 2. Bad steering column intermediate shaft (e.g., worn-out u-joints or bearings). 3. Loose/worn out suspension componets (e.g., strut mount or strut bearing). Still, it is best to have your vehicle checked by a certified mechanic for proper and accurate troubleshooting and diagnostic. I hope this helps!
