Default Clunking sound on acceleration

ALRIGHTY SO here is the story. I made a terrible purchase a few months ago that i regret. My girlfriend needed a car so we found an 03 wrx that was decent shape about 157k miles on it drove it everything was alright BUTTTTT there were a few issues. Main one was i thought it was my fault first gear was grinding when i was shifting. There was a mat that didnt fit quite right so i thought oh maybe its the mat. It stopped doing it so i didnt think much of it. I was driving it and everything was good. few weeks later it started grinding again. I found out that by shifting to 2nd then to first it wouldnt grind from a stop. i kept doing that. then eventually there was this weird metal on metal grinding sound more like a rubbing sound.

(think like two rocks constantly rubbing eachother in circles https://youtu.be/1kRUiPAI9_o?t=4m18s Sort of like this just louder and more constant.)


soon after i started getting this binding/clunking sound when i was pulling out. and then it would just constantly do it.
changed out the gear oil and out came some little things that looked like this
except there were only like 2 of them



took it to a shop they said it was the centerdiff. so i said go ahead and do it. it was fine after they did it except and it didnt make the rubbing sound as much. a week later it was low on gear oil . I topped it off and i saw that the gear oil had little black spots. So today i checked it out before heading to the mountains and it was really black but full. so we took it up there and on the way there it came back again clunk clunk clunkk. SO im wondering if the grinding or something could be causing the centerdiff to go bad or if its just another problem. the amount of clunks increase dramatically when i was making a u-turn. But anyway. Sorry for this being so long. I feel like i should just buy a new transmission at this point
