Default Clunk/Grind... that goes away when braking?

So recently I had a clunking noise start in my car. Originally I thought it was only while decelerating in gear, but now I've found it does it when accelerating softly (maybe hard too... my car's too loud to hear it), and it does it in neutral too. Around 25 mph its a rough kind of "clunk clunk clunk clunk" that changes with vehicle speed. As I slow down to almost a stop its more of a grinding "grriiiinnndd......grriiiinnddd....etc"

I got under the car last night and found quite a lot of grease around where the axle meets the tranny. The CV boot itself is fine, the grease was only on the tranny. So now I'm thinking maybe its been leaking grease for a while, and the CV is just tearing itself apart with no grease now. Does that sound like normal bad CV noise? It's on my driver's side.

Now the weird thing (to me anyways) is if I barely touch the brake, the sound goes away entirely... Would a CV noise go away if you were braking?

How do your brakes look? May not be related to your gearbox.

Yeah check if the rotor on the corner the noise is coming from looks messed up. It might be a caliper that is sticking.

Rotors are fine, calipers are fine, pads are fine, brake lines are fine... I checked all of that first hoping it was like a loose caliper or something.
