SOURCE: I have a 2006 chevy
On my cobalt (same platform) there is a known bad engine mount that clunks (like you have bad shocks) when you go over bumps.
If you look under the car from the front, you can see its a circle, (supposed to be ) filled with a rubber/composite bushing. They crack and this causes the banging.
It is supposed to look like this...
However, the rubber breaks off and your engine is flopping around.
This part needs a press to press out the old piece, so a mechanic would be the best repairman for the job.
The scraping noise is a different problem. I would suggest CV joints, but being a 2006, they shouldnt be bad unless you tow, or accelerate heavily.
I would lean toward a bad wheel bearing with the symptoms you are describing - also a job that requires a press.
You're in for quite a bill!
Figure $250 each wheel bearing and another 100 or so to fix the mount.
Dealership would be 2x that.

You need to jack the front left wheel off of the ground and try to get movement from in and out wiggle it put one hand on top of tire one on bottom of tire and **** it in and out to see if that bearing is loose .. if so it might need replaced or maybe take it appart and grease it.. I believe those are only replaceable .. not greasable.. thanks jerry P.S I would do this soon sounds like it could leave you stranded with more expensive problems ..

Have a mechanic check lower control arm bushing at the rear of the control arm.It is a horizontal bushing retained by a vertical bolt clamping it to frame.The tire will move more forward and back more than it should during braking. canuck mechanic.

Get your truck up in a rack and take a look at the drive shaft, the differential, the u joints and the ball joints. Regards, joe

On those brake calipers you need to turn the piston as you push the piston in. Of course, there is a tool for doing this. Using a C-clamp or a caliper piston tool, push the piston in, then with the other brake tool, turn the piston clockwise a turn or two, and then repeat with the C-clamp. Spraying the piston and seal with WD-40 will help in turning the piston to collapse it back into the caliper.
