Front end grinding noise

I have a 2010 Armada and it just started making a grinding noise in the front end when I shift into reverse and try to back up. It also will not move unless I give it gas. When I put it back into Drive I donít have the problem. Anybody have any idea on what the problem might be?

Did you look under there to see if something is caught up the CV axle maybe? If not that type of thing I'd think it'd have to be the front diff, no? What else is up front that could grind when moving only in reverse and hold back the truck like a parking brake? Brakes calipers or rotors that messed up would be bad going forward too. Same with the CV axles as far as I can think. And wheel bearings.

I'd pull out the front drive shaft and see if the problem persists. That would let you eliminate the diff anyway with a few of minutes work. If it is the diff you want someone good to look at it asap- they aren't cheap. You could also drain the diff and see if metal comes out.

If not that I don't know. Take a good look under there for any recently worn shiny metal spots around everything that rotates.
