Clicking noise from under 4runner

I have a 98 Limited automatic and I rotated my tires the other day and now Iím getting this clicking noise from somewhere underneath the vehicle. The sound is similar to when my cv joints went bad and I replaced those and the clicking noise was gone. Here it is yet again. I sounds like it was coming from my drivers side front wheel area, but when I rolled the passenger window down, it sounds like itís coming from that side now, so Iím kinda stumped. Iíve changed both of the front bearings as well. Iíve lifted each front tire and rotated them separately, but I donít hear any noise coming from either. Also, the clicking will increase as my speed increases. Anyone have any idea what this noise could be?

Did it sound something like this? I had a similar problem a while back and couldn't figure it out for the life of me. Turned out my steering knuckle was cracked around the upper ball joint, and I only found out what it was once it broke off and left me stranded up a mountain. Not a pleasant time

So I put the tires back to their original locations and the noise went away. Canít figure out what the heck was making that clicking sound.

Running stick on wheel weights inside the rim? Wheel weight hitting something?

It wasnít a stone in tread for sure.
Maybe it was the wheel weights, but arenít those on the outside of the rim? Not sure what running stick means.

I just recorded this video this morning: very frustrating not to be able to identify the source!

Why are you so weird - YouTube

The sound appear after driving for a "while" (10 minutes) and then appears (as on the video above) while on parking break...

Btw, just like you it happened right after I rotated the tires (front to back / back to front).

Everything looks pretty straight there... I removed the wheel and put it back on to make sure it was correctly screwed. Testing now.
