Question Clicking noise

Hey all,
About a few weeks ago I've noticed a very irritating clicking noise coming from my front end when I drive. The sounds are coming from what it sounds like by my left and right wheel area. When i slow down the clicking slows down and when i accelerate the clicking speeds up. I've been doing alittle research and I think it may be my universals or u-joints going bad but I'm not sure.

Thanks

If this were a 4x4, I 'd tell ya to have a look at the axle joints . IF it is a 4x4, change em, it can get mighty expensive to run worn front axle joints... Never heard of such a noise from a 2 wheel drive

Yeah we need to know 4wd or 2wd?

If 2wd it is most likely wheel bearings, but could be a few other things....
If 4wd still could be wheel bearings amongst other things, but also could be something with the driveline of the 4wd...

I didn't mean spun bearing as in a bearing in the engine, I meant old/bad wheel bearings. Wheel bearings do wear out over time, especially if they aren't ever repacked with grease. The fact that the clicking matches to the speed of the wheel indicates to me that it is either wheel bearings or like you said the axle joints...

a failing wheel bearing is more commonly a sound of a "roaring", like loud mud tires.
it really could be a number of things, the ujoints are a good cheap place to start.
the transfer case chain having slack, I have read is a common "clicking" noise
