Normally the CV joints would not squeak but the rattling noise I am not sure.
Look for an open space for making full turns.
Turn steering full turn and engage 2nd gear, accelerate, if crocking noise is heard, the CV joint is bad, left turn = right CV joint, vice versa.
Check for torn driveshaft boots, if any is torn, the joint should require replacement.
