Question about Cars & Trucks
I would say you have a failed wheel bearing
or brake problem
I doubt you have a strut issues
Maybe ball joint, but if a tire was involved it wouldn't
last long & you would be under there checking all
around the tire,correct,you have ruled out the tire have you not?

I just did that a few weeks agon on my daughter's 2004 Stratus Sedan. Same passenger side rear! The original factory part was **** and fell to pieces. The new parts are greatly improved. Buy two (2) because you will need one for the other side in the near future.
You will need a coil spring compressor for this job, some metric wrenches/sockets, and something to hold the top stud of the Strut when you loosen the nuts. I think the nuts inside the trunk are 15 mm and the big one at the bottom of the strut is 18 mm.
Check out moparpartsamerica.com/schematics/p/pm01495.gif for a great exploded view of the entire strut top to bottom. Go to the Auto Zone Web site and look up your struts and print the inspection and repair/replacement topics. Check the strut closely before you decide to put it back in, particularly if they have a lot of miles on them. I plan to replace all four struts next summer on my daughter's car.
I reused the old strut, but you need to decide if it is a good time to put new struts on for yourself. This would be a great time to do it if you need them. Look closely at the rubber bushings at the top of the strut and buy a new set if they are not really solid. I bought new ones when I did it.
Start inside the trunk by pulling back the trunk liner to expose the top of the strut and mounting bolts for the broken bracket. Spray all the nuts/bolts at top and bottom of the strut with liquid wrench a few times. Remove the two (2) outside nuts first. You will need a special socket to hold the end of the strut stud while you turn the nut off. I used a big pair of Vice Grips on the flats, but use the socket if you can get one.
That big bolt & nut that attaches the bottom of the strut will take some effort to remove. Use the coil spring compressor to take the load off that bolt before you try to remove it. The suspension component to the left of that bolt will need to be unbolted and lowered for the strut bolt to be removed. Good Luck!

struts frozen or not will not control how close the tires are to the strut. The tire and lower portion of the strut move of one. The compresson/rebound point is about the strut base

problem is with over inflating the tires,causing middle tread wear,as long as you have more the 3/32 tread wear in the middle than you are ok.always set tire pressure when cold at around 33psi,check tire inflation sticker on dar jam for exact tire pressure

The E-brake is stuck on. Rock it back and forth from Drive to Reverse and it should free up. You really should get the brakes checked too.
