2005 Saabaru

Default Handful of sounds coming from tranny. Any Ideas?

So here's the deal. I bought an 05 Saabaru earlier this year, and have put maybe 1000 or so miles on it. In that times I've had to replace the front control arms (Sti suspension installed by previous owner, LOTS of positive camber) so it could be something with that, but seems unlikely.

Recently, the clutch started slipping under boost. It had 89k on it, so not a big deal. The problem is, it also started making one singular clunk when accelerating. It sounds like it's coming from the tranny, only in first gear, driving straight or turning. I would describe the sound as a muffled *TCHUNGK*. It happens whether the car is warm or cold.

Next up is the tranny clicking. I'm thinking this might be the center diff... Only on decel. More noticeable with the clutch engaged, but will make the sound without the clutch as well. Sounds likes this at speed and then decel: (flutter tongue) TRTRTRTRTRTRTRTRTRTRTRTRTRTRTrtrtrtrtrttickticktic kticktick tick tick tick tick tick tick tick tick tick standstill.

As I said, this happens with and without the clutch. Could be an axle, I guess, but I was told they were new. When I do the clutch, I'm draining everything anyway. I'm also suspect of the "synthetic" gear oil in it. Going with Andrewtech mix to see what happens.

Last sound, which is probably related to the clicking, happens at speed. I thought it was my turbo to DP gasket, but replaced that, and found it was still relatively loud. When the car is cruising and rpms are held around ~2300, the tranny makes this noise: BSHZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ (not buzzz Z, but more like [xia]ng)
This goes away when I go up over that rpm, and also when I decelerate, but is replaced by the ticking sound when decelerating.

Something's goofy in there. I've been pretty careful with this car so far, but I don't know how hard its life was before I got it. Any thoughts?
