I'm confused

I took my car to dealer because I hear a noise from under the hood. It's hard to describe but it's a thumping/rattleing? Sound. They told me it's my steering shaft and they ordered a new one. Would this cause that kind of sound from under my hood?

2010 G6 GT Black 41,000 miles. Under GMPP Major Guard warranty until 112,000 miles.

That's a common problem with this car.

Thank you! Do you happen to know if the sound would be coming from under the hood? I'm not familiar with any mechanics of the car. I was thinking if it was from the steering shaft it would be coming from the steering wheel. Am I incorrect? Thanks in advance.

I'd trust the dealer on this. His mechanic has sat in your car & road-tested it. If you didn't have ISS issues you'd be the first.
