Grinding/scuff noise in front end
So I just bought a used 07' Compass manual 4wd w/107,000mi on it and like 2/3 months before I got it it had new ball joints/throttle body/an 2 new tires plus an oil change... I've got this weird grinding/scuffing kind of sound coming from the front end.. thought it was the brakes at first but when I hit the brakes the noise is still there... Someone suggested maybe the clutch but it still makes the noise with the clutch depressed or not... It almost sounds like the 4wd is partially inegaged... I don't hear it when in reverse.. it shifts fine so IDK... Had it on a lift and was told it sounded like it was coming from the transmission... would love some input... Thanks!!
