your problem is more than likely one of a few problems
there are two hoses on your transfer case one sucks in one blows out if one gets cloged it will go out completly so have it checked its starting.
or check the oil in the transfer case

The radius arms which are part of rear suspension are usually just thin-walled pipe since all they do is locate the rear axle and are subject to bending for various reasons. This will cause the wheel to be out of track with the other 3 and the tire will wear oddly by scuffing along sideways rather than just rolling in the same direction as the other wheels.
Depending on how severe the bend is you may be able to have the wheel aligned without replacing the arm but, since it has been bent, it has lost structural soundness an may fail (break) causing a real problem.
Get it fixed.

SOURCE: Car trouble!
Check to ensure that all your tires have the same size numbers on them, and have the same pressure in them, following manufacturer's recommendation, or the max spec on the tire sidewall, whichever you choose.
The problem having begun with the slashed tire may be coincidental, but AWD doesn't like it when there are different sized tires on the vehicle. It causes the gears to fight themselves, and can cause irregular tire wear, and eventual drive line failure.

Could be a broken belt in a tire but the shop that balanced the wheels should have seen that, Otherwise, it's likely that you have a bad hub bearing (front or rear...you need to listen and determine where the noise comes from) or a C/V joint going bad (usually a boot will be torn or split if that is the case) One note though...hub bearings are built very well and don't get loose 'till the very end. don't rely on shaking the tire to test them. If the noise is there, it's bad.

Sounds more like a tie rod end is bad. Try a reliable shop that specializes in front end repair (any place but FIRESTONE). The tire wear could be due to the loose tie rod end throwing the car out of alignment.
