Since you can make it do it when the car is jacked up, try listening with a stethoscope. You can find one at any auto parts store or Harbor Freight Tools. They're not very expensive.
An outer cv joint will make a clicking sound, but probably not when the car is raised up and there's no force on it. Look if the right half shaft has a center bearing in the middle of it. That would be more likely to make noise than something in the transmission.
