...didn't want to seem like Scary Mary, but I've seen this happen in person. Early one morning on my old commute I was behind some guy on I-5 in Portland when this happened. A big chunk of the right front of the car went kerbang and disintegrated when his right side driveline seized. Fortunately the wheel assembly and the various pieces now welded to it ended up in the grassy area of an offramp. But I couldn't believe that the guy tried to keep driving the car. Must have been some dopehead... This was before cellphones or I'd have reported the guy.
Doesn't sound right to this old wrench-turner, from your description of the noise. That's a fixed part of the suspension. What you've been describing sounds like a rotating assembly, like a wheel bearing or a CV joint. In thinking about it, could the suspension have gone 'sloppy' enough that an oversized tire is rubbing on something inside the fenderwell? Not sure.
Either way, you were smart to get it in right away. Stuff like this can go completely south without further warning. Growls and 'objections' from any wheel when rolling or side loading from cornering should always be seen to promptly.
