As your Jeep has four wheel drive, I don't understand what you mean by a "4wheeler axle",
What was the difference between the one you had and the one you installed?
If you installed it and it is working, I don't see how it could cause the one on the opposite side to fail.
Though I'd need a better understanding of what you actually have done, my present answer to your question is no, and likely the other side needed to be replaced as well, but you did not notice.

When Im turning i can hear a clicking coming from the front side of my car what could it be?


check your CV joint boots. If the boot is torn then the CV joint is probably bad. replace the whole drive shaft instead of repairing just the outer CV joint.

One of your CV joints are bad, inspect which CV joint needs to be replaced. Roll your windows down and make tight right and left corners in an empty parking lot slowly and listen for the clicking noise. If it's coming from the passenger side window or the drivers side window, which ever side the noise is coming from is the side that the CV joint has failed and will need to be replaced.
Thank you for using FIxya and replacing the front wheel bearing improperly buy hammering the CV joint out instead of using a wheel bearing puller will cause damage to the CV joint as to what you have described. Good luck and keep us posted.

Replace front passenger side u-joint on 4x4 drive axil


The wheels have to be removed, along with the brake calipers. There are four bolts that hold the unit hub bearing onto the front knuckles. The hubs have a very tight tolerance area that fits into the knuckle.
Sometimes the hub siezes into the knuckle and this is where the labor and parts can pile up. What makes this even more difficult is that the brake rotor can only be removed after the hub is knocked out of the knuckle, so it all has to come out as an assembley.

There is a nut in the middle of the hub. That nut is on the end of the axle stub, which passes through the hub bearing. If they make good time getting the hub and all out, they can still get stuck trying to get the stub shaft out of the hub. And it will have to come out to get the U joint out. Replacing the U joints should be straight forward.

How do I remove the original ball joints?


An air chisel is the quickest way.Cut off the head and punch out the rest of the rivet,then replace with the included bolts.To separate the ball joints loosen the retaining nut until only one or two threads are holding it on,then hit the casting that the ball joint goes thru with a big hammer.Sounds weird I know, but the joint is angled and striking it straight on will force it out without even touching it.Hit the casting really hard and it will pop loose.This works for tie rods too,hit the casting that holds the tie rod and it will separate without damage.If you use a pickle fork remover it will destroy the rubber boot.After separating watch that rubber brake line.If you let the lower control arm go it will break that brake line so be sure it's supported.Good luck!
