Lol That's the real kicker - I've had it sideways a couple times since I got it, but I was barely even playing when it broke, maybe half-throttle at 2/3rds-left turn? I can tell this car's been abused by the previous owner(s), though, and the dealer that replaced the clutch that went out right after I bought it (since I picked up the car 1k mi from home, and it went out 20 min from the used car lot) said the diffs were leaking like crazy, and that they "fixed" that as well...

If you could bring it to me, I could fix it.

You can remove the 4 bolts on that shiny cover plate on the center diff and look at your gears that way.

The way the tires should rotate (off the ground, car off, neutral)

Front - front (free spin) - One wheel should rotate, other side should be reversed. Rear tires will not rotate at all
Front - front (tire held) - when one wheel is held in place, and the other rotated, the rear tires should spin

Rear (either side) - When one tire is spun, the front two should spin. The opposite side may spin as well (in my case it usually doesn't, or will spin very little). It may be harder to turn the rears VS the fronts, especially depending on your fluids in the system.

Update:
Drained rear diff - fluids looked great, still translucent with some color to them
Drained transfer case - gear oil was blacker than the blackest black times infinity, and had a bunch of filings stuck to drain plug - surprising, considering it was filled in June. Dealership also appears to have "manufactured" a t-case fill plug from some all-thread and a nut at that point (said it was leaking terribly when I took it in for a new clutch).

Pulling transfer case and transmission to send to Jack's to be rebuilt, as well as ordering urethane bushings for the rear diff and redoing the CV joints. Will update if all this does not solve the issue. Thanks again for the help, guys!

Thats disgusting.

Indeed, it was quite disgusting, and smelled like rotting fish...
Thank you, sir. If Jack's doesn't throw a new one in there for me, that'll be a handy link!

Its not the EXACT plug that came out of it, but it should all be the same dimensionally. It may be a MM or so shorter on the threaded end, but otherwise should not cause any issue.
