Default few questions 02 grand am

i know its not a bonnie but i had a few questions regarding some issues i reacently have been having w. my gfs car.
!. about a week ago i was driving home after a show and eather hit a curb or ran over somthing. needless to say my front right tire had liek 4 golfball size holes in it. i had AAA put a donut on it and theny put it on a flat bd and drove me home (why? well 2 state troopers pulled in behind me in the brakedown lane and went about to let me drive home..whew..).
ok next day my gf goes to pep (suick) boys and gets a new tire. they proceed to rotate them and put the new one on the back right. thats when i started hearing a noise comming from what seems the front right tire. i figured they fucked up as usual so i took it back to another pep boys and they looked at it, drove it, and i talkd to this kid who seemed to know more then the other losers (and spoke english). and he said it was probably the wheel bearing (they gave me a quote for liek 450 for both front wheel bearing fixed) he rotated the new tire back to the front right.
now it pulled to the right realy bad esp on acceleration.

is there anyone out there that has a idea on this?
the car has only liek 60,000 on it would this go so quickly?
would hitting a curb or somthing mess somthing up in the front? thats what im figuring?
how about cost what should it cost to fix say the front right only wheel bearing?



#2 is there a way to tighten a driver side power mirror? its loose and shakes when i hit bumps?

thanks guys JVV

You hit a "curb or something" quite hard. The car is damaged in that area and needs a professional mechanic and alignment shop to look it over. Make sure you tell them that you hit something, otherwise..they won't be looking for bent tie rods, A-arms and knuckles..

BTW..what is suick?

dont take my word for it (rely i mean it) but it does sound like a hub bearing assembly. i only add my two cents cuase i had to replace mine at 98k miles...it did the exact same thing...it was horribly loud, dragged my car to one side and vibrated a **** ton...got a new one at advanced auto for about $120 and had a couple guys at the shop bolt it on for free. could probly get some directions for a do it yourself job. they made it sound like a cake walk.
