Did you check back of the rims to see if there is rubbin? Brakes, lugnuts>

You got aftermarket wheels maybe that the problem, do you have a stock wheel?? put that on and spin it..

Thats a weird sound man, you have any witness marks on the back of your wheel from it hitting? Have you checked your wheel bearing/hub for issues. Grab the wheel at 6 and 12 push on one and pull at the other. Is there any play? The front CV shaft rubber makes noise too could that be it?

yea the grinding is the rotor/pad contacting. mine does that.

as for the boink, i would grabs the CVs and jerk them around see if you have play, same with the driveshaft.

also have someone else spin the wheels while you go around and get closer to objects to see if you can narrow it down.

does it make the sound while going down the road?
