Being that the steering wheel is shaking, my guess is that you still have a bent wheel or one out of balance. As far as the grinding noise, a wheel bearing problem or the inside of the wheel rubbing somewhere is the only thing that make sense to me. Assuming that all the parts you replaced are good (not bent), I would go back and make sure the rubbers are good on your control arms, check the inside of the wheel and look around for any indication of the well rubbing, and you might even want to double check the wheel bearings. I definitely would change the RF though. At least to test the car. Its been my experience that once you bend a wheel, you never really get it straight again.

IF YOU DIDN'T REPLACE YOUR ROTOR
YOU CAN TAKE A LOOK TO MAKE SHURE
ITS NOT BENT. THE GRINDING COULD ALSO
BE SOMETHINK RUBBING ON THE CALIPER.

Also look at your spare uppers really good if they are stock they can be bent and it is very hard to tell and look at all the links on the front end move it around put some pressure on it make sure it's as close as it was before the wall and make sure that it didn't twist any maounts sometimes they go back and have small twist but when it's all together it's a biigger prob

Hey Guys,
I found the problem and it wasn't even in the front. It turns out the rubbing noise was the back tire rubbing the frame because the upper arm on the 4-link rear suspension bolt hole was oval shaped instead of round. That also was causing the shaking feeling in the steering wheel. I guess noises fool you sometimes. Thanks for the help anyway. 34
