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.

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