That "clicking"isnt coming from the inside of the diff. Its coming from the outside of the diff where the ring and diff gears mesh. I just had to replace mine because it was done for. Cost me about 10 bucks i think to rebuild it. You can shim the diff and that should help. Ias going to but didnt want to have to wait on the shims to come up. Going to test again to to see if it clicks.

No problem, it took me a while to figure it out the first time I saw it.
