So over the past month there has been a grinding sound from the front end that has progressively gotten worse. The CVs, wheel bearings, and brakes, on both sides have been replaced. I have taken both the wheels off and had the car on jackstands and put it in gears and the noise sounds like it is coming from the center of the car, not from the hubs. When driving, it happens in all gears including just letting it go in neutral and also when braking. The car shifts in between gears no problem, but i have a feeling the problem lies within the transmission where the CVs go in. Any ideas or advice would be greatly appreciated.

In the manual, the differential is in the same shared case. There's no separate oil-fill for the differential cause it's inside the transmission.
Looking at the tranmission around the right-side axle, the drain plug is at 6-oclock and the fill plug is at 9-oclock. Is that where you filled? Not sure about 3 quarts, but you're supposed to fill until it just runs back out of the fill hole.

Yeah i drained and filled using the spots described. Anyone know if there is a breakdown somewhere of my transmission. It really sounds like it is coming from right where the shaft goes in on that passenger side and i was wondering if maybe there was a bearing or something in there that might be bad.
