Exclamation Clicking noise and accel/decel, and shifting. WTF!!!

ok, just started hearing this a few days ago. I usually listen to music, so i don't know how long it's been there.....not that long though.

-after putting a bosh rear o2 sensor in and it hitting my driveshaft and making a noise, i removed it and put in a ford o2. I listened again and now i hear this "click" noise whenever i get into it quickly and when i get off the pedal, and when i am shifting. sometimes it goes "click click", sometimes just "click". i can make it do it easily from 1st to 3rd gears, and reverse.

-i dont believe its anything to do with the o2. this is on a STOCK SVT focus 2002 with only an intake. STOCK exhaust.

-It's on the passenger side front as far as I can hear. when u are in a tunnel or next to another car you can REALLY hear it click.

-it's not suspension as turning doesn't make the noise.

-sounds JUST like a torque wrench when it Clicks.

anyone knew WTF it is? car drives FINE. it's just a freakin noise that is bothering me.

I talked with a friend and he said either axle or endlinks, but i'm thinking axle.

the infinity has the same thing in that video. The axles are only like $160 for both sides, so it's not that costly. maybe someone will chime in that has remedied this. I have pulled axles, but not because of a clicking noise....

Have you got ABS? Check there is nothing contacting the serrations on the drive axle.

You might have missed this:
"Have you got ABS? Check there is nothing contacting the serrations on the drive axle."
It's one I posted earlier.
