halfshaft clicking noises from rear of vehicle / member bolts keep loosening

Hi, when the weight of my lightweight transfers for eg when I turn a corner I hear a clicking sound from the rear of the vehicle. This is especially bad if there is some weight in the vehicle. Sometimes the sound also comes from the center as though it is from the differential.

The sounds comes from both ends, left and right, and also the center depending on which side the weight of the vehicle transfers to.

Furthermore, no matter how hard I tighten the drive member bolts, they always end up loosening. This also if I use lock-washers.

I have just replaced the halfshafts in the rear of the vehicle which means they are new. I did this as I thought that they were worn and that that was what was causing the clicking sound.

Thanks in advance for any advice.

Regards, QSCH
