Pretty sure Dana means that since you have been paying them, it's about time the insurance company
did a bit of paying on your behalf. Of course, this is a math problem in cost versus benefits that you
will have to calculate. And you can't do that until you know what you're dealing with.

Grinding noise is probably just from the light pressure your brake pads are exerting on your discs. You
are looking for a noise that is not constant but occurs in one spot during the rotation, right?

This sure sounds like a damaged tire or wheel. Suggest you take off the wheel you suspect is wobbling
and replace it with your spare tire. If this stops the wobble/noise then you have found the culprit. Give
that a try. At least it's free.

Good luck and all the best.

I haven't really kept ya'll up to date, but recently I changed the wheel hub on my front passenger side and the noise and vibrations died down quite a bit. Still there, and my buddy at Tom's Tires diagnosed the driver's side wheel hub and said that's bad too so I'm gonna end up replacing it this weekend. Spindle nuts are hell though
