Clicking from hubs?

So i was driving in town today and was in 2 wheel drive. I decided to switch it in 4 while i was going about 20 ( I like to do that from time to time just to keep things moving) and it sounded kinda funny when it engaged. Then I stopped at a light shortly after that and I heard a clicking sound from the front wheels I'm not a 100% but it sounded like it was it was driver side only. So I put it back in 2 and it stopped, then I pulled over and stopped put it back in 4 and it didn't do it anymore after that. Is that what my junk PVH hubs do when they go out or was it just having trouble engaging in 4 wheel drive for some reason?

I got a crap load of maintenance on my truck to do tomorrow and will check out any ideas that get posted. I checked CV boots and they look fine. Thanks in advance!!

I haven't been able to get it to click anymore now all I hear is a squealing sound as the front wheels move and it speeds up as I accelerate.
