New noise in steering after accident repair.

So my 2007 DC LB got smacked in driverside front wheel/fender by girl illegally turning left while I was making a left turn. She took out the fender, rim, top a-arm, headlight and steering rack. After some "work" with the collision center to get things "right" again or at least as close as they will ever be, again) I find that I have an odd sound coming from the passenger-side front of the engine compartment.

After I start the truck and when it is initially moved (within the first few seconds/minute) and i am turning, I can hear a low groan. It is sounds similar to a tire rubbing an a-arm/frame but softer and more quiet. It is not constant, maybe happens one or two times, then I can't hear it for the remainder of drive. Could it be a flow issue with new rack? The steering is a bit funky- at times seems overboosted and pulling. THis could be a bad alignment I suppose, making tires track on imperfections and trenches in road (I70 thru the Mountains of CO took a hard hit this winter, nevermind our failing infrastructure).

Any thoughts? Thanks
