Brand New Warn Manual Locking Hubs / Noise?

This weekend I installed new shocks, new rotos/hubs, new seals and bearings and new Warn Manual locking hubs. Replaced the old damaged one. While test driving today I noticed in the FREE position a clanking/ratcheting noise. It don't appear to do it while driving straight but when I turn at slow speeds I can hear it but that it eventually goes away. Anyone suggestion of what could be causing this? This never happened before....

Thanks

check your bearings for proper tightness

loose wheel bearings will cause that ratcheting sound
