Unhappy 05 F-250 grinding , cant drive 100ft!!!

Hi, I'm new to the site, and new to diesels, but i have an 05 f-250 King Ranch with a 10" lift. Bought the truck less than 2 weeks ago with 123,000 miles on it. took it to a higghly recommended powerstroke shop a couple days ago for a stc/hpop/ipc fix, didnt want to get raped by a dealer, or get screwed with cut rate work. got the truck out yesterday. The truck ran great (better than before by far!) on the 20-25 mile drive home, but upon pulling into the driveway i heard a loud metal sound coming from underneath me. I decided to run it to the gas station to see if i could duplicate the noise. just pulling away i heard a hard clanging sound that you could feel while driving. i thought maybe the shop had accidentally left a tool somewhere and it was rattling around, because i didn't hear the noise on the way back home or today on the way to work (15 miles). On the way home, I immediately started to hear and feel a loud clanging again like metal hitting or something catching at low to medium speeds, sometimes to the point where it felt like my truck was getting pulled to a stop. i got home ok, called the powerstroke shop and all he could say was bring it in tomorrow, problem is, i now cant get the truck to drive more than 100ft down the street before it screeches to a halt, give it gas, engine revs, wheels stay put. i try to reverse, get about 20ft, wheels stay put. eventually get it back to my house using intervals of reverse and drive until i could back into my slightly uphill driveway, it has trouble to say the least, but i at least get it somewhat parked. i'm not that knowledable of things of this nature, so any information, suggestions, solutions, shops nearby southwest houston,tx would be greatly appreciated

Thanks

Check the t-case and rear diff to see which one is empty.

sounds like either the transfer case is junk or one of the sprags or sun gears in the trans is toast. Or maybe the rear diff has bearingthat went out.

Thanks, I'll look up how to check the diff and trans case, but if it is a bearing, sprag or sun gear, does anyone know how approximately much those repairs might cost, money's tight, this being the second time in a week that the truck's been undriveable

Exclamation UPDATE

went under the truck to check t-case and rear diff, found the cause of the grinding noise. looked at passenger's side brake housing area and found that the spring on the back side of the housing was twisted. checked the driver side, the spring was straighter (looked normal). upon closer inspection, i noticed i could pull the spring assembly back and forth about 3/4 of an inch. not normal. looked around the housing some more, found a couple of jagged, mangled pieces of metal caught up around the rotor. removed all the pieces i could find, but noticed that the housing seemed a little warped. decided to see how much play there was in that spring area, so i jiggled it a little bit, and the spring came out of the housing completely! can someone please explain this assembly, what it is that i need to fix, whether or not i can do it at home, and what it might cost me at a shop. this is my only truck and i cant drive it anywhere like this for fear that i will compound the problem. i will upload pictures as soon as i can find the darn cable to hook up my phone
