Question Differential click-clunking at (nearly) all times

I took the Suzuki snowboarding, used 4wd through the pass (locked the hubs and engaged at a stop), disengaged going about 50 once I was out of the snow (off the accel and with wheels straight).

Now, I don't remember if I heard the clunking before I disengaged or if it even matters, but now I hear nearly constant click-clunk from the back. I used to only hear the clunking when I turned but it is now mostly constant. Although it seems to disappear at times when I accelerate.

It's fairly obvious that it needs to visit a shop, but does anyone have any thoughts on what has happened?

I found the problem. A scary one at that. I pushed it around until I could pinpoint the noise and it was actually coming from my rear wheel. The lugnuts were loose, with one of them nearly off the stud entirely. Anyway, I tightened them and no more noise.
