Got done with a ride today and noticed a cracking/click sound when pushing my bike into the garage. I have some slack in the chain so that slaps around a little bit this sounds more like it’s coming from the axle/hub area possibly by the chain guard. I have tusk hubs on there the bearing were replaced all around from the previous owner. Any ideas what to look for? Some bolts were loose on the sprocket but I tightened that and it was still there

Misaligned rear wheel can cause a click.

Sprockets looked good I’m not sure about the chain it is really loose tho I can fit 3 fingers and still have some room. The sound really seems like it’s coming from the hub area. All the bearing were replaced I was told but who knows. This looked kinda funny tho what do you think? Photo

How do you check that? I measured from the axle blocks they both seem about the same distance

I’ll pull the wheel soon and check, how can you tell if the bearings are shit after the wheel is off? Also I have tusk impact hubs the bearing kits are out of stock for a minute. Is there any other quality bearings that will fit?

That’s what I first thought, it sounded like it was coming from there but I took the chain guide off same noise. Sounds like it’s coming from the axle I’m guessing it’s the bearings or it’s out of alignment but it looked pretty good alignment wise

I took the chain off it still made the clicking sound so the chain is ruled out. I took the wheel off spun it no notching or anything they seemed pretty smooth. I put the wheel back on finger tight no sound. Maybe it was just out of alignment? The axle blocks diddnt seem like they were at the same length. I did notice the bearings diddnt look aligned very well inside the hub not sure if that matters or not here’s a pic Photo

Does axle slide in smooth or drags going in?
Maybe pre owner didn't seat bearings completely

I use metal rule(mm) to measure the gap of jam nut to flat of block
or use length of bolt measurement

I never trust block marks

Replace the axle blocks as one is damaged and causing a misalignment and that will cause the chain to ride on the sprocket out of align and cause the noise. If you look at the rear sprocket closely you will see wear marks either on the inside or the out side of the sprocket where the chain is rubbing on it.
The blocks in your photos show them to be out of alignment and one is bent.

I've also had the brake pads click when axle is misaligned especially wave rotors. The rotor pulls on the pads unseating them.....
