have you checked the brakes ?
No. What could be wrong with them that would cause this problem?

id closely inspect the hub since you replaced the axles when i got mine it would pop and click every once and a while then i drove 300 constant miles and it got worse and constant upon further inspection i found this

Try and judge if the noise is in time with your wheel rotation or your engine rotation. I once had a very similar sound on a Daimler Majestic Major and it turned out to be a loose bolt in the torque converter bell housing. Having mostly had manual cars I didn't find the fault but a friend who had driven many automatics recognised it. It's just a suggestion if you find nothing else wrong with the wheel/axle/hub assemblies.
