I just redid my front end and its been making a clicking sound ever since only when im rolling, sounds kinda like one of those Chinese spinning rattlers, it has the manual locking hubs, and im not sure whrere its coming from cause it only happens when im going 15mph+,

Jack up and support the vehicle properly. Spin the front wheels one at a time and see if you can determine which side the noise is coming from.If you can determine which side the noise is coming from remove that wheel and look for a "witness mark" what ever is rubbing has probably left a mark. Look for a sign of rubbing on the brake dust shield behind the rotor and make sure the brake shims and anti rattle hardware are all fitted correctly.
