My Galant has this really loud grinding noise coming from under the car, almost sounds like a bad bearing.

I recorded a video, you can defiantly hear the noise I'm referring too.

The driveshaft was recently rebuilt.

Is it possible that part of the exhaust is contacting the driveshaft?

I checked that, and everything is clear.

The sound gets louder the faster I go, but doesn't change when hitting bumps or anything.

Going to check the Tcase this weekend.

The driveshaft makes a clunking sound.

How do you tell if its bad by visual inspection?

That may be the cause of this vibrating noise while using the engine to decelerate.

Look at the shaft where it goes into the joint. See if there is extra movement. Also look for tears in the boot. These things dry out and it gets expensive. It is there to allow the drivetrain to move, the lobro allows the DS to have some stretch,
