Front Tires Choppy and Rearend Noise w/video. Any ideas?

So my dad took his 07 in because of road noise that we have been hearing in the front end. Its strong enough to vibrate the floorboard. They checked it out and said that the front tires were choppy on the inside.

We looked at it and they were right so I said there must be an alignment problem from the factory. The service guy says oh "No", the tires just need rotated and that Nissan Titans are bad about chewing up the insides of the tires. I said well I have 12K on mine and no problems with any front end noise or uneven tire wear that I have seen. He didn't have anything to say about that he just told my dad that he needed to have the tires rotated and the service manager chimed in as well.

Also, he has a rear end noise that sounds like metal on metal when he turns slowly like through a parking lot. I am thinking its a rear end problem as you can see in the video I took with my phone below, the sound is slower than the wheels are turning. What do you guys think?

I have the same problem on my 06. I had it at the dealership for that and they couldn't seem to re-create the noise or locate anything that would cause it. I will hopefully be going back to the dealership later on today to address this problem. If anybody knows what is causing this noise please post it.
Just got back from the dealer. I took a tech for a drive and after a little while was able to finally re-create the noise. He heard it and put the truck up on a lift in the shop. He played with the wheels for a little bit and found that the rear passenger side wheel was the one making the noise. He assumed it was the brake and took the wheel off to check it out. Upon inspecting it he found that I had a bent or warped rear passenger axle. When the wheel is in motion it rubs against the inside of the rotor. He told me that they have had similar problems with a few other trucks and that there seems to be no single reason that causes it. Will be fixed under warranty. If you are still having this problem have a mechanic check the rear axle's. I wonder if anybody else has had axle problems similar to this.
