So my wheel fell off due to broken lug nuts. And the rotor hit the ground pretty hard, It actually took some chunks out of the pavement. (I was goin ~15 MPh). I put the wheel back on and put new bolts on. Now when I am driving its groaning and whining when I go slow, and when I go fast its vibrating making the same sound it did when I was missing three lugnuts. (I actually found out it was missing three at the gas station, and it totally broke off on my trek to the nearest friends house- 1/2 mile away). On top of the noise my tranny now is in Limp home mode after 5 minutes of driving. So what is the matter, and would a mechanically inclined person who knows how to change tires and change inner tie rods bushings be able to fix this?
