Where the front CV drive axles checked? And was there a front end alignment done? Causes for the vehicle pulling, and noise.

That sounds like a broken mount, could be an engine, transmission or even a cracked frame. I would locate a shop that specializes in VW and have it check over, tell them what is happening.
