LOL! you can say that again! Lived in NE Ohio for 25 years...always an adventure on Cleveland streets.
Unless you live in North Royalton, the streets are "GARBAGE"

Hope it all works out...

Did you say that the fluid level is good? If you haven't I would start by adding fluid

Yeah I checked it after I saw the leak by the drive shaft. Its still full and isn't losing alot. I tried adding some and it only took a quarter of a bottle.

Did the sound get better or stay the same after adding? Part of a seal may be knocking around inside.

Its the same. It seems that its getting worse and man its really grinding bad now. I hope its the gears and not the diff. It still drives normal though. Could it be the carbon disks in the track lock?

Honestly, I am just guessing. I have never done drive line work. I would take it to a shop.
