just replaced a drivers side axle with a new one. Starting clicking in a few miles. It does happen . not doing it in fwd is kinda odd

Past experience with bad axles, as long as it isn't dry of grease, turning is usually the time when you hear a bad axle the most, since there is most stress on the CV, going straight, rarely as bad. I promise these aren't axles making this sound.
Does anyone know what would be near the output shaft on our fwd/4wd tranny's that could be creating a sound like this? It's not a throw out bearing, it's not the driveshaft and it's not wheel bearings.
It's getting to me. I'm going to try n see if I can find some front outer axle stubs and just run it in 4wd/rwd, or find a pull lever 4wd 5 speed to replace my old rump roast crappy mileage 4spd 4wd tranny, but I'd prefer finding a fix for it instead.
Edit: fixed a few words and left my phone's autocorrect to rump roast, seems fitting

You can try running it in gear on jackstands with the front wheels off. Just be careful, use good jackstands and chock the back wheels. You won't have to get under, just use a broom handle or a long dowel rod up to your ear and touch it up against the components to pinpoint where the sound is loudest. You may have to clamp down on one of the parking break levers on the caliper if it only wants to spin one side.

loose axle roll pin? maybe a little binding from the 4wd keeps it tighter in place?
just guessing really.
does it change tone or pace under any circumstance or is it just there or not?

I'm thinking it's in the transmission, so I'm on the lookout for a 5spd pull lever 4wd tranny. In the meantime I'm going to see if I can get my hands on some outer axle stubs and just run red. It's been going on awhile and I doesn't seem to be getting worse, but codswallop is it annoying and embarrassing as hell. Super loud when coming to a stop and taking off.
If anyone is local to Seattle with a 5spd pull lever 4wd tranny let me know
And thanks everyone again for helping
