Default Starter issue. No turn over, but starts with the front lifted

This is weird af. Hopefully someone can help me out.

Car will not start and barely cranks. As if there is not enough power. Also it's clicking, as if the battery is dead. I first thought it was the battery, tried leak charging overnight and jumping with another car. No luck. Took the battery out and it tested fine. It's less than 6 months old. The starter was replaced less than 1 year ago. This is where it gets weird. Jack the front up, put it on stands and try to start the car. Starts first crank no problem. Lower the car, no start. Checked out all the connections, everything looks ok. I only have to lift the front about 6 inches off the ground to get it to turn over.

Help!
Thanks!

/dead thread.

If anyone cares or is having the same problem, it ended up being a grounding issue. Of course it was the most pain in the ass one, the ground underneath the tmic. Ended up running the wire to the top of the strut tower bc the small bracket with the 10mm bolt above the trans snapped off

You talking the one from battery negative to the starter?

If you're talking the little one on the firewall beneath the pitch stop, that is a minor ground, the one on the starter MUST be good to handle starter loads.
