Wheel Bearing Question

I changed upper control arms, lower ball joints, swaybar endlinks, and installed the SSBC kit. There were no issues before doing so. Now there is a noise. As soon as the truck starts to roll it's there. Kind of like a clicking noise. The hubs seemed to be fine. But with the wheels/tires of I spun the hub. It makes a clicking noise. Should the hubs make any noise? Sorry I don't have a video of the noise. Thanks for any help.

I took it to Firestone and they said it will only do it under load. Everything seemed tight. They were dumbfounded. They also said it could be hubs or u joints but they can't pinpoint it and don't want to throw parts at it.

Figured it out. The clip that goes on the caliper bracket that the pads sit on is rubbing the rotor. The little issue sure does make a lot of noise. The techs at Firestone had my truck for almost 2 hours. It took the tech at the dealer my wife works at 15 min. Once the pin pointed the wheel it was coming from it took a matter of minutes.

Wow stupid
Noises are always fun to find. Ask warlord about his center caps I heard as he was driving by in a parking lol. It's the stupid things easily overlooked that normally make the noises.
