rotational clicking from rear? park brakes?

Hi,
I have a 2011 overland that is making a rotational clicking ticking noise while driving (hear it best when passing close to buildings or in parking garage). Faster than the tire rotation but speeds up and down according to vehicle speed. Dealer change both left axles Friday, but noise is still there. Sounds a bit metallic in nature. Could the parking brake pads have let go and rattling around? Any thoughts? They say everything underneath is solid.

Could be a wheel bearing, but you would think they would have heard the tick while turning the wheels on the lift for the axle replace.

Parking brake pads letting go usually means you stop and can't move. Could be some debris in them, or a loose suspension component.

Perhaps the new axle has a defect.... just guessing... The lug nuts are tight?

It went in for the noise and they replaced axles but left the noise....
They said they checked the wheel bearing and all was good. Back in tomorrow.

So we are now annoying noise-free...if you can believe it, it was...a part sticker hanging down and ticking on the drive shaft!
