Default help me please

hey there, i have a few issues. im so lost and puzzled need some help.
1 i was in an accident i rear ended someone on my front drivers side.
2 my oem tires are rubbing my driverside of the stabilizer bar.
3 i have a real faint hum coming from front driverside when turning slightly to the right. goes away when going straight or left. i have checked the bearing by putting on the parking brake and checking the tire at 12 and 6 position back and forth.
4 when accellerating there is a slight bouncing that you feel let off the gas and it goes away.
5 also when i accelerate hard or light if you let off the pedal you can feel something that would feel like the front brakes engage. the truck you can feel jerks forward like stopping.


could this all be a bearing bad or rotors.

I have replaced in the last 200 miles the stabilizer bushings both left and right, both left and right stabilizer links. all 4 shocks. new pads all the way around, and a new caliper passenger side had it freeze up on me. rotors seem to be smooth and not worped. when i brake i dont feel pulsing like a worped rotor.

Please help.

Your front suspension is not properly located. A suspension piece has been bent and the geometry is off. That is putting a strain on a bearing, can be affecting the caliper/rotor/pad interface. I suspect the bouncing is also in the front?

I'd get the front end inspected at a good, reputable alignment shop or at the dealer.
