Sounds like the axle is not seated all the way in the transmission. Either that or there is an issue with the sway bar, did you have to unbolt the sway bar links or bushings to remove the axle? Also, is the noise happening all the time or just when you are accelerating?
Check to make sure that the axle is in the transmission all of the way.
Ok, so the axle is pushed all of the way up against the transmission housing? Can you check and see if the clip is still on the old axle to ensure that it did not fall off?
