If you're doing brake work, you might replace the wheel bearings at the same time. The sound *perhaps* could be wheel bearings...

Hi again,

Today I removed all brake calipers as dealing with brake maintenance.I had opportunity to check rear axle.I checked space by lifting each rear end individually to define where the sound comes from and also space at differential gears.As a result, from both sides(left and right) free play(to forward&reward) when 'P' is about 25 degrees roughly also during turn, sound exist('tak' once) and shaft does not turn.Is it normal such space?Space from both axle seems to be same.All in all, I will replace new barrel type bearings to both axle and replace all internal and external axle seals.But if the reason of this sound and space is Joint.That time, it will be very difficult to disassembly whole differential.

Any suggestions or recommendations?
