Default bad cv axle on 04 ram 1500 4x4?

Hello everyone. I have a clicking sound coming from my front end on the driver's side. The noise started shortly after i bought the truck several months ago. It has 80,000 miles on it and needed new lower ball joints and tie rods. I replaced those parts but the clicking is still there. The bearing seemed fine(no grinding or whining) The click seems to be in rhythm with the wheel turning. It starts at about 5 mph and goes away at about 40 mph. The clicking also stops when i brake.

Could this be a bad CV joint?

Thanks for your help.

Could be, but I'd be more inclined to think wheel bearing first...
