Could be several things actually.
Without more information on where the noise is coming from it's hard to track down the problem.
A couple of things I would check since it's a 2012 is both the upper and lower ball joints and the sway bar end links.
8 years can play havoc on these components and by now should have been replaced.
Start from there and more info if possible. 馃憤

could be the springs resettling potentially if the struts are new.

Tie rod has a ball joint which would be considered the upper. 馃槈
Control arm at the knuckle would also have a ball joint as well also considered the lower ball joint.
Hope this helps. 馃憤

Id check all balljoints but i had this weird noise and a little wobble over potholes a while back before my power steering coupler failed.

I also checked all balljoints to figure out the problem but couldnt find it untill a full 2 months later i got the steering wheel noise.

If the balljoints are ok all around the car and the coupler has never been replaced and you have a squishy steering wheel it might be time to check the coupler or replace it because it would stiffen up steering anyway on high mileage cars

Little edit: if you do decide to open it, just replace the 5 dollar part as its too much work to open it and not replace it.
It shouldnt be a hard job just a long job.

Tie rod "ball joint" is called tie rod end, not upper ball joint.

Offtopic maybe but in hebrew they just call them "apples" , steering rack apples, knuckle apples etc..
in dutch aswell theres no difference between balljoints or tie rod ends.

Of course you can crawl under your car and try to wiggle all the connections to reveal any looseness.

But, you don't indicate at all, from where the noise is emanating, like "front" or "back". Left side or right side.
