Clicking noise comming from the front end??

I have a 1995 Jeep JY with the D30 disconnect. The 4X4 disconnect works great but there is a clicking noise when the car is moving. the faster I go the more clicks, but as i break the noise becomes much louder. I was wondering if this was a bearing problem or a U joint problem. I was thinking of re building the entire axle this summer but the noise has become progressively worse.

thanks for the help, the picks are from the summer but nothing has changed except the diff cover being re painted and cleaned.

I had same problem.....1st one after purchase.....front wheel bearings.

You can look at the front Ujoints easily and see if they are worn around the ujoint cap.

If you put the jeep in 4wd and turn in circles while driving, a bad ujoint up front will make a noticable popping noise while turning. Gravel/sandy parking lots work great for this.

Set your front axle on jack stands, push top and bottom of wheel/tire in and out (wobble)......any play? .....wheel bearing.
