You have broken either your front diff or cv joint. How mechanical are you.
Might want to send me your number and I'll call and walk you thru what to do.

When you can, crawl under it and turn the front drive shaft by hand. If you broke an axle or CV then the front shaft should spin by hand.

What are we voting on?

Star your engine, put it in gear and watch both drive shafts to see which one is spinning. If you find one then you have a front or rear diff issue and yes, lets talk.
