Could also be 1 or more wheel speed sensors bad. The paint bubble on the hood is normal for the 2000 year and these are aluminum hoods so they wont rust.

Can I sand that spot and paint over it for now.The reason I thought stability problem might be the steering wheel position sensor is because of the slight knocking felt in the steering wheel itself when turning wheel at 1 oclock or 11 oclock .

I suppose so. There was a recall on certain vins for 2000 for crappy paint jobs on the hoods, you may want to check with the dealer.
