I have a 2002 Dodge 1500 Ram 4x4, quad cab and had the same problem. In\015\0122wd the clicking was constant, in 4wd it would go away. Also I had no\015\0124wd while in 4wd, found that out after a snow storm. I took my truck to\015\012a buddies garage (a Dodge mechanic), he said this is a common problem.\015\012He pulled the drivers side wheel, hub, axle and stub axle. The stub\015\012axle splines where it goes into the CV joint and and the internal\015\012splines in the CV joint were gone. Almost smooth even. The wheel\015\012bearing was completely wore out too. I ended up replacing the hub\015\012assembly, both the inner and outer axles. Not a cheap fix either I\015\012have about $600 repair bill, but it's back on the road now smooth and\015\012quite.
