FRONT AXLE NOISES WHEN IN GEAR

1986 Honda Prelude

Noises problem
1986 Honda Prelude 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 161000 miles

Recently replaced both full front axle assembly's within the last year. Started to hear noises when vehicle is warm and the gears are engaged. Noise stops when in neutral. Noises sound like a rubbing coming from somewhere near the axles. Checked transmission oil levels they are fine, checked if heat was occurring anywhere on the axle (none). Noise seems to go away when parked over night, then will start up randomly. I have also noticed the main large nut has shifted slightly from its locked position. No oil seems to be leaking from any of the seals on the axles. Please Help.
