The U-Joints would be the forst guess and thing to check out. Usually they squek in reverse but if it is clicking U-Joints first. Also maybe something is loose down there look around and see what happens.

Id check the u joints. From my experience when the diff goes bad it vibrates badly and makes a loud noise
