help driveshaft rubbing!!!

Hi I posted a week ago about my driveshaft grinding.. People have asked me to post pictures but I'm still learning how to use the site. I'm going to break it down. I have a 98 mustang gt 4.6L.. My driveshaft flange is grinding up against the front of the differential housing (yoke). Weather I'm coasting or in the gears it grinds. I got under the car and checked the u-joints and they looked fine. Also tryied moving driveshaft up and down and it is firm with no play. There is no leak coming from carrier bearing. I have the car lowered an 1.5.. Not sure if that will have anything to do with it. The car was giving to me with this problem. Anyone know what it may be. Sorry for long post. I'm just trying to get a rough idea on what it is before I take it to a mechanic and they try to take me for a ride. Thanks.

I assume that you are hearing a grinding noise coming from the area that you describe. If so, probably, the pinion bearing is bad.
Haha. Thats a guess.
We can, safely, narrow it down to something wrong in the differential though...
