So when i'm turnin my wheel after pulling out of a parking spot, i heard a grinding noise, it doesen't do it all the time. I also belive that i have a bad wheel bearing on the pass. side. Could the bearing also be the grind i'm hearing?
when i bought my GTP the owner said he hit a curb bad, and one of the rims is bent but still balanced. when i had the chance i took it in and had an alignment and i needed to replace the lower control arm. i still have a wobble on that side, but i only drive 5 miles to work and work 6 days a week so i haven't worried about b/c it's winter and i'm not driving any where.

Could i have more wrong since the aligment is good, and that it is pulling other parts that might be bent? (spindle, half shaft?)

Any thoughts would be a great help, thanks

If you haven't, you may need to take your G6 to a front-end specialist.
You should make a trip to an empty parking lot to try to duplicate the noise, or even better, try to find the sweet spot where the car makes the noise when you want.
You can try swapping the rear tire with the front too, this will eliminate the possibility that its the tire/rim.
