    I want to say it is a half shaft going bad, but you have a 2014 truck with most likely under 100k miles.

    One thing I have done in the past is:
    -get the front two wheels off the ground. Chock the rear wheels, parking brake on.
    -turn steering wheel until it stops (left or right) and pull key to lock steers wheel.
    -spin front tires by hand to locate noise.

    This might help you find any binding up that might be going on. Hope that helps.

    First thing that comes to mind for me is a cv joint. If the joint was pulled out a bit and not set back correctly it could cause the clicking.
    This is what happened to my Tacoma. Drove with it that way for a little bit until the entire bearing blew out when i put load on it in 4X4 in sand.

    see that what I am thinking I had issue when doing that side with the cv popped out and I thought I had everything in correctly. until I used 4 wheel. under 2 wheel conditions you have no issue it's when you are only in 4wheel or under a load ... I'm hoping that's all it is really dont do anything else with that leveling kit..
