How are your brake pads?

You may have a worn out brake pad that is doing metal-to-metal with disk and you're getting the noise. Check brake pads and calipers.

You mean TORSEN center differential, not Eaton.

Audi (with the exception of only 2-3 models that use Haldex) all use Torsen center differential. The GX uses a very similar TORSEN setup.

Poor quality brake pads or frequently overheated pads or pads that were not bedded properly WILL cause the rotor "warping" by depositing on the surface over time.
