Issue is finally resolved!

Axles!!

Odd because when inspecting the CV joints and stuff I couldn't see any sign of wear to the degree that would cause that sudden jerk to the wheel.

80A and minimal vibrations. This is on the two front side mounts and the RTM.

Still need to re-install the blackened damper, hoping it won't loosen my engine hook again.
