    Driveshafts usually start clicking loudly when turning right or left and are quiet when going straight ahead if not too badly worn - are you sure your wheel nuts are tight

    jack up front and spin each wheel as fast as you can by hand , if the noise is present when both sides are done it most likely is the diff , if only present when one side is spun then could just be tha CV on that side .
    hope this helps
