Grinding noise from center console when braking...help!

I checked the universals for the 4wd and the rear universals. All fine.

I checked the brakes and found the LF caliper had one piston sticking and the wheel turned hard. Aha...here it is.

Ah no.

New caliper and I still have that noise.

Any ideas? I'm lost.

Check the transmission cable that hangs over the front driveshaft. The clip that holds it in commonly breaks and will cause the cable to rub against the shaft during braking making a noise.

Wj 2002 WJ select trac

Thanks for that cable clip info.
The grinding is the Rotating type of noise. When I checked the universals I saw no cable hanging. Do you guys mean when you say the 'front drive shaft' - what I call 4wd transfer case out put shaft? or something else?
