break-in procdures vary from manufacturer to model to engine. most people drive it gently by keeping RPMs low until the first oil change. i have a cerametallic clutch disc and read that there is no brake in needed with cerametallic clutches so i really didnt baby it.

Are you sure it is your axle? If it is clicking with the clutch in and going strait theres no load on it when it makes noise. Sounds more like it might be your throw out bearing, does it do it when you are not moving with the clutch in?

Clicking axle means the boot has been ripped for quite some time now and most likely most of the grease packed in the boot is gone and the joint is shot from being exposed to dirt, dust, and other road debris. If you catch torn boots early enough you can just replace the boots. Now if it starts clicking you might as well change the entire axle.
