95 ZJ loud humming/clicking type noise

I have this awful noise coming front driver side front. I have eliminated the axle shaft/drive shaft/ and wheel bearing for sure. I droppedd the front drive shaft and it made the noise a little softer. It gets louder with wheel speed. I am almost certain it has to be the ring and pinion worn but Im not 100% sure. If I can get any input that would be great. I am in the position to get a whole axle from my buddy but I dont want to swap it if its not the problem.

i did the gears didt look to terrible but when I drained the oil it had the silver waves of glory in it. No trimmings of metal just metal dust so to speak.

Was it full? If it was,you probably need pinion and carrier bearings.
