Weird Stuff Going On?

Been experiencing a recurring "problem" with my '88 Bronco (Stock). Noticed a clicking noise on the drivers side front wheel as I accelerate (normal acceleration, making a turn does not make a difference) from 15mph on up. It does not happen once the vehicle has been run for a little bit (5-10 minutes). The sound increases with speed.

I replaced the rotors and wheel bearing 6-8 months ago, had the inner and outer rod ends replaced by dealer 2 years ago. Checked to make sure the bearings were OK by doing the 12/6 o'clock check. All seemed tight. When I did the 3/9 o'clock check I noticed movement. Is this normal?
Tire wear is normal.
Just wondering if I should take a part the automatic hubs?

The only other thing I notice is a vibration between 60-70mph. (Tires balanced and rotated religiously, new rear u-joint 6 months ago) Thought I would throw that one in to see if anyone has cured this problem.

Any advice would be appreciated

Yea, I would get into the hub again, and check the auto hubs. Really, the autos are junk. About the time you really need 4WD is when they will break on you. You can easily swap to manuals.
